My little boy is 3 years old, i cant take him in any shop without him screaming from the minute i walk through the door to the minute i leave. We've both had a tough year as my mum passed away and we all lived together, my mum helped to look after him while i was at work and college, he just seems to never so anything i ask him or if we do anything like go shopping etc its contant screaming, he hits me, runs away. Im really struggling and dont know what else to try, iv tried counting to 5, taking a toy away, putting him in his room, nothing seems to work, iv even tried offering a treat if he's good, he says that he's going to be good and hold my hand but the minute i walk through the door igt starts, he throws himself on the floor with reigns and climbs out the pushchair. I feel like im fighting a loosing battle and dont know who else to turn to, its ending in both of us being in tears everytime. Its easy for people around me to turn around and say that they would make him, i do make him but its so stressful and iv even started to have panic attacks at the thought of it. Im only 21 and have no other family, it was just me and my mum so dealing with all that is hard enough without my son acting like this. Please someone give me some advice.
