I am so frustrated. My son has turned into a tornado! He has progressively gotten worse over the last few months. He destructs everything in his site, doesn’t listen to anything I say, screams and throws fits when we tell him no or discipline him. I know some of this is normal but to what extent? He loves to throw himself back when he gets mad and hits his head on whatever is around. He will fling himself across the room and just scream. I’ve tried time outs, ignoring his behavior, smacking his bottom, putting him to bed, showing him a toy he likes and nothing seems to work anymore. The recent thing that has really hurt me as a mother is that he doesn’t like it when I sing anymore. He used to love it when I sang, I have sung to him since he was in my belly. I thought he was just upset the first time I sang and he covered his ears and screamed but he does it all the time. I kept doing it today and he flung himself on the floor. I feel like such a bad mommy. Any suggestions?
