I have a 17 month old and he wants to constantly be carried, especially by me. There are times when I can't because I'm cooking dinner or cleaning. He will cry and throw a fit, I try to distract him by giving him a snack or stopping to take the time to play with him, but that doesn't always work. He will throw himself back, and hit and throw things at me or his sister or my husband. He gets very angry, lol, and I feel bad cause all I wanna do is console him. Even when he hits me, is he too young for time out when he throws his tantrums, what should I do when he wants to be carried?
