My son and I have horrible battles, he is three he has a little sister who is 18 months younger than him. Every little thing with him turns into a huge tantrum and battle, he has a speach delay that we are actively working on. But he will freak out if I give him the wrong drink or he will tell me what he wants and then freak out when I give it to him because he changed his mind, he will just stand at my feet hitting me or pushing me just because he has not gotten his way. Now the sad thing is when my husband his father gets home it goes down like ten notches and I feel like it is just me. Now here is another thing is this a hereditary thing, my brothers from my mom have anger issues and were delayed in there speach and my sister is coming across the same thing with her almost two year old. Why is it worse with me I dont give in I give him choices he gets time out I am trying to get him to just sit away from things that are making him loose it. He is not getting a lot of sugar he is a picky eater but we dont give in on that.
