ok so my son is 20 months old and i just feel like he has turned so naughty recently.. he does not listen to anything i say. when i say no he runs up to me and yells no in my face. he throws things at me he is hitting people and he is constantly winging.. he follows me around all day sooking and if he doesn't get what he wants he throws the hugest tantrum.. i just dont know what i should be doing..
i have tried time outs which kind of work sometimes.. i have tried smacking him but now he has just started hitting people.. i just feel like i dont even want to be anywhere near him. i feel like im a bad mother because i cant stand being around him because all i get is him crying at me. im really worried because my second baby is due in less than 4 months and i have no idea what i am going to do if he keeps behaving this way and a new baby comes along. he started acting this way when his father left and i moved in with my parents.. i think my mother spoils him to much she picks him up every time he makes the tiniest noise and she is constantly giving him food that i would never feed him...and she will not listen to me when i tell her not to do these things.. i saw my sons father the other day and he just basically yelled at me because of our sons behavior he couldn't believe how bad it has gotten. i just really have no idea what i should be doing.. please anyone with advice or tips i can try i am willing to try anything to get my lovely son back.
