... is being a complete turd.
We are trying to accomodate his feelings upon the new arrival of DD to our family. However, I'm wondering if we are creating an obnoxious child.
His favourite phrases;
- go away from me
- I don't like it
- no - to everything
- you're making me sad - when he doesn't get his own way eg: put your shoes away please - I can't im too sad
- trying to play DH and I off against each other eg: I say no and he starts crying - I want daddy... And vice versa
His main form of communication is to yell at us and tantrum at anything that he perceives to have not gone his way.
Help!! We need some strategies which give clear boundaries but also want to be empathetic to the disruption in his life right now but don't want to be taken as suckers.
