My 8 month old son is having more and more temper tantrums to get his way. If we take things away from that he should not have he will fall out. I am not sure how to handle this. I don't want to just let this keep sliding by or letting him think this is OK. I will let him cry and walk away but still not sure if that is the right thing to do. Could use some advice on this matter.
Ok Let me re-phrase my baby boy who is 8 months old seems to throw himself on the floor and kick, scream and grunt when we take things that would cause him harm away. I do realize he is a baby but when does letting him know that kicking screaming and swinging fists is not ok when something that will cause him harm is taken away? Does he have to be 2 or 3 years old before correcting behavior is Ok?
