I'm so overwhelmed I don't even know where to start. My son, who is now 1 month shy of 2 years old is STRESSING ME OUT! Since birth he has always had a very quiet and cranky disposition. I used to always wonder why he could not have been the "bouncing baby boy" I envisioned. I would see other moms with happy, highly babies and be consumed with jealousy and then hurt for felling that way.
Fast forward to today and not much has changed except now I'm terrified this may be more than just normal "terrible two" type behavior. He is almost NEVER happy. From the time he wakes up until I put him down it is constant whining, crying, hitting and melt downs. On the rare occasion he is happy, I could almost cry with joy.
I am very attentive and affectionate, I do not tell (though I am firm when disciplining him) or hit him, he lives in a happy, healthy environment so I don't get it! He does very well at daycare, it's everywhere else that's an issue. I'm so worried he's showing signs of serious behavioral issues that I often just cry thinking about it. This sounds terrible but he's just sin mean at times. I know many are experiencing similar issues, but ALL THE TIME?

I've also been going through the terrible twos ever since my son was 13 months, he's now 17 months and now he's full blown terrible twos. I'm finding that spending more one on one time with him is helping him feel a little more secure and it really makes him happy.
