Okay so, My son is going to be two in a few days. He has b een throwing these temper tantrums for about a month and a half now. They are getting worse and worse. At first it was just the normal crying and getting upset. Then he added screaming bloody murder into the mix. Then he added stomping and throwing himself on the floor, regardless if he hit his head or not. And just today he started to bash his face into the cement outside because I took him off of the swing in the back yard.
I am not really one to complain or even tell my family business to strangers, but I seriously need help with this. I have tried everything. I have tried ignoring it, smacking his butt. Putting him in the corner, putting him in his room, yelling back. Mimicking him. Everything. Nothing seems to work. It's only getting worse.
I am pregnant with my second child. (30 weeks) So I am getting more and more tired everyday, and his kicking is really starting to hurt me,a nd Im afraid it's hurting the baby inside of me. I have literally tried every advice people have told me to try. Nothing works. Is there such thing as a behavior person for a 2 year old? I just need advice.
I've even tried a reward chart for when he's a good boy. Everytime he does what hes told or helps out or gives kisses for no reason, he gets to put a sticker on his good boy chart.
Nothing is working!!!!
