We looked in to going 2 days at daycare but we just can't afford that at the moment. He was loving his time before we moved and now he's gone back to crying all day.
We are going to try out play group tomorrow. Hoping it will help him.

I do know his tantrums are part of being 2 lol. I do think they wouldn't be so bad if he could speak more but unfortunately that's not happening yet. We have a referral for a speech pathologist but wanted to let things settle down after moving first and then go. Starting to think we should just go and see how he does. His tantrums do seem a lot worse after moving that's all.

We've only moved a bit over a week ago, he's been sick on and off for a month and his tantrums have been going since the day he turned 2 lol. They've just gotten much worse in the last week.

I've been trying to get him more involved and sometimes he's loving it. Other times I might as well talk to myself. I'm sure a lot of it is to do with his age but I'm just hoping me losing my mind is not going to continue. I'm trying to keep him busy when we are stuck at home but there's only so much we can do when it's freezing and raining. He loves outside.
I'm not working. Part of me wants to but it's not exactly beneficial to us financially. DF is a shift worker so could be on nights or days but we try to avoid talking to him at work.
Yes, we have 2 dogs and 2 cats. DS loves them. The dogs are German shepherds so he can play with them but it can be a bit of a battle lol

One thing we tried that kinda worked with DS was a reward chart of sorts. Very very basic (we have a magnet one). We did easy stuff like 'get dressed', 'brush teeth' etc. It helped a little on some days to hurry up decisions and the tantrums as he knew he had to do them.
I am not going to lie. It is so hard. I lost my mind and the plot with DS so many times. It did not matter that I KNEW it was not on purpose. It just wears you down - DH did not understand as he did not have it all day every day.
It will get better - I think maybe getting the speech/hearing checked sooner is probably a good idea. I will point out my DS does not have hearing/speech issues now. He started talking more/properly at about 2.5. Now he does not stop.
Hugs. Its hard.

He did have his hearing checked maybe 6 months ago? The lady said it was good. As good as she could check it at his ages. I've ring the speech pathologist and I'm just waiting for her to ring back for an appointment.
I kinda just wanna cry all day

hugs hasselhoff. putting a different slant on things, could DS be upset because he is feeling your stress?? This move has only been a week or two ago, so there has not been enough time for anyone to be feeling settled. We moved a few times while the children were small, it was very stressful and oh so hard for me. Twice I had to do all the packing and unpacking on my own, with three little ones and then again with four kids. Please try to just take each day as it comes. I would really expect at least three months before you are all feeling settled and at ease in your new place. Hugs, marie.

If you only moved a week ago give it some more time, as others have already suggested the stress of moving affects the whole family and he would be picking up on this also, it takes time to resettle after a holiday, let alone a full move. It does sound like it's lots of things all at once.
Look after yourself and get a break/help where you can, you will get through. Hugs x

My DD1 didn't talk for ages. Wasn't saying much at two, the odd word here and there. She had to repeat Prep as her teacher didn't think she was ready developmentally for grade 1. She wasn't talking in kindy or first year of prep. Her peers were amazed to hear her talk one day when I was there for group work lol.
Your little man will more than likely just take off one day. My DD1 doesn't stop talking now lol.
