We have a 2 1/2 year old son that has been going through his terrible twos for over a year now. I am a sahm who is constantly with him. My husband works for about 9 hours a day, including travel time. When he has the day off or even when he comes home from work, my son goes from being the mild mannered kid I spend all day with, to becoming a hell-raiser. He disobeys, throws tantrums, doesn't want to cooperate with anything we ask him to do. My husband took the week off last week, and it got so bad, I wanted to run out of the house and not come back. It's a constant power struggle, but it mainly happens when my husband and I are together with our son. I feel as though we can never take trips together until this phase passes. We can never enjoy being together as a family if this keeps happening. Any suggestions?
