My almost 3 year old boy can be very mean sometimes and I have exhausted myself trying to correct his behavior. He is very energetic and emotional! Simple and ridiculous things can set off his tantrums, he can get really wound up and starts hitting or throwing toys, he doesn't listen at all and his 1 yr old sis gets in the middle sometimes! Time out does not work with him, neither does sending him to his room or yelling. Getting down to his level and calmly but firmly talking to him about the problem doesn't seem to do anything either. I get so frustrated I have to walk away! Any advice would be helpful as I have no clue what else to do! Also am freaking out because my husband will be going on a business training trip for a week and this will be the longest we have gone without him home!
