My daughter is 2 1/2 years old and has to have a tonsillectomy and partial adenoids removed. I understand she has to be in the hospital for 2 to 3 days. Has anyone else had a toddler have to go thru this? What should I expect?View Thread
My daughter had trouble too. We ended up taking her to a specialist and it ended up being a simple fix. She was holding it in. She would clench up, stretch out and cry. He has her taking Miralax everyday and that makes her stool soft and prevents her from holding it in. The trade off is it's very loose so potty training has been put on hold for a bit until she is the one pushing to use the potty chair. Hope this helps.View Thread
First of all Do Not give him what he wants when he throws a temper, you'll be reinforcing that behavior and showing him it works. Second of all, try to avoid what sets his temper off. For example, if he likes things on a schedule, then do your best to keep that schedule. If he throws a fit in a store then don't take him for a few weeks, try again and tell him if he misbehaves he's going in the car. Stick to it. Don't make idle threats...do what you say you will. When he gets violent, put him in a room and let him be as long as he is safe in there. and finally, talk to his doctor.View Thread
