My son is now 16 months (born Dec 4th) and has started throwing temper tantrums. He is wonderful around other people but with me he always gets them. Usually only when he is getting tired. We had our first one in public at the zoo this past weekend where he started slapping me in the face and trying to push me away. I don't know what has gotten into him. I know most moms usually think this but he is usually fantastic. Never cried, was able to play by himself while I cleaned. But recently things have changed. He even tries trowing things around. He has a small picnic table that he tries to flip over, the red and yellow car he flips over...pretty much anything he can get a hold of he tries to throw it.
Most of the time I just let him do what he needs to do and ignore his so I don't encourage it. Most of the time I dont even know what he's mad about. Is anyone else going threw this and what do you do that helps them stop?
