So my 21 month old son has taken an attitude change for the worse! He used to wake up all happy and smiles, and just in a good mood all the time. The day was seriously perfect with him and I. One day he all of a sudden woke up in a bad mood, crying, whining, tears, snot, the whole shee-bang! And its been this way for weeks. Not only is he a grouch in the mornings, but its an ALLLL DAY thing now. He doesn't tell me what he wants or that he even wants anything, he just runs through the house screaming & crying until I pick him up. The only thing that makes him happy is when I hold him. He has given up naps and sleeping at night. For nap time I tried letting him cry it out. That didn't work, he just stayed up and cried for close to an hour until I went and got him. The second I put him on the couch and popped in Shrek, he was OUT! He never used to be this way. And his 5yr old brother was never like this. I honestly dont know what to do to make him happy. Other than give in to his demands, but I dont want him to use me. Any ideas??
