Are your boundaries to him clear so that he knows what are your expectations?
I ask coz I have a 6 week old too, and when I was pregnant I think I was so tired that I started to 'give in' a little bit..then I noticed that both ds1 & ds2 really took advantage of it, so I needed to really make an effort to ensure that they were ok.
So foe eg, going to the shops.. I explain what behavior I expect b4 we get there. If after a few visits they've been really good each time, they get a reward.. Maybe a matchbox car or even just banana bread... Same for help at home, display expected behavior and we can do something nice later on...
The "go away" thing, we have gotten for about 8 months now.
At first I used to beg him (he was 3 at the time) to not say that coz it hurts my/their feelings.
Now, I just say 'ok I'm going' and he says 'ok I'm coming with you'.. Which then diffused his anger.
It's only when I'm very upset with him that I tell him not to say those words.
Lastly, has he perhaps had a rush of testosterone and hasn't grown into it yet? That happened to is at 2.5 and we r expecting another one soon...
Don't know if that helps at all....

Thanks I'm glad he's not the only one who says go away! It's horrible, I hate it.
I try to be very clear with what I expect from him behaviour wise, but I must say my mum let him get away with a lot while she was here so maybe that's it!

hi sagirl. just something to follow from the post who suggested gluten being the problem. someone else had to remove gluten and it then took 5 weeks for the gluten to be out of the childs system. and voila! new child. I wanted to share that, because if you do make changes in the diet, be prepared for a rather long time for there to be noticeable results. Marie
