My son is 2 yrs and 7 months old. He has a sweet, loving, but independent personality. He doesn't throw tantrums much but when he does.. man.. watch out. This is usually when he's over tired. He still requires a nap everyday and when it gets delayed.. that's what alot of the trouble starts. I use the timeout method since that seems to be working more for us. The problem is, he doesn't speak much around other people or children. He can say alot of words and phrases.. hes just not going to say them around other people. I feel as though others are judging him or maybe they think he's delayed. Aren't tantrums normal part of development? I'm ashamed to admit that sometimes i get frustrated and little embarrassed. I feel like I'm not doing what i need to and neither is he.. maybe I need some encouragement.
