I noticed some other posts about temper tantrums, but i'm having a hard time in that my son is much younger and I'm at a loss as to how i should handle these constant fits he's throwing. Everytime he does not get his way, he throws himself on the ground, screaming, crying and this is occuring every 20 minutes it seems all day long!! I have tried to get down on his level and speak to him calmly, but i don't think he fully understands nor cares to hear what I have to say in that moment. He has also resorted to hitting out of frustration. Have also tried distracting him with other toys or books which used to work great, but now no longer seems to do the trick. His biggest thing is that he learned to climb up on the furniture and refuses to sit when he gets up. This is causing dangerous situations because he still has no concept of falling. I am 4 months pregnant with my second and at my wits end on some days. I've resorted to putting him in the car sometimes, just to get out of the house and calm him down. Any other suggestions on how to deal with an ornery child at this age? Thank you!
