My (almost) 2yo DS is so difficult once it gets to 4.30/5pm. Throwing things/hitting people/pets, tipping water out of his cup all over the floor, getting into things he knows he's not allowed in and throwing tantrums etc etc! I never know what to do to get him to calm down and TV doesn't seem to help in the times I need him to just stop/calm down for 10 minutes. I'm usually trying to get dinner ready and it's getting harder and harder! I feel like I'm just constantly telling him off and he doesn't understand time outs.
I need some tips on how to help him just relax and wind down ready for the night routine. Help!
