My youngest is 3. I seem to have lost my patience. When I say no to him, he will follow me around, poking me in the eyes, trying to lift my shirt or skirt (esp in public) or scream in my face. He can do this for most of the day sometimes. There is no amount of time-out that will settle him down. I have to stand at the door to his room and hold the knob. While he screams as though someone is murdering him. I do not recall my others being quite as irritating, although I've seen a few hundred tantrums and antics, dozens of toys have been flushed down my toilet, etc, etc. Hey, I've got 4 boys. But littlest was the most docile, happy baby-- an amazingly easy one yr old (my easiest) a terrible two and now an absolute monster of a three. Today, after being tormented by screaming, eye-poking and relentless abuse, I threw my glass of water (the water, not the glass) at him. We were both shocked. He walked away. I don't want to make a habit of this, and feel a little guilty that it worked. Any suggestions?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
