I have been through this myself! My son wa 15 months old when I had my 3rd and final child! I could not even begin to tell you what all we went through and still deal with even now! My son is now 3 1/2 and and his little sister was 2 in june! It has gotten a little better but everyday is still a struggle in our house! I had a behavioral therapist coming to my house once a week to obseve and give advice but it did not seem to help much! I have read books but most of the books r written by ppl without kids! I totally understand ur frustration but i can only tell you to look for resources in your area to help! Dont feel ashamed or embarressed even though at times it is hadr to tell someone how mean and hateful ur child is! I would even try and call ur local human services department and c if they have a program or a list of resources for someone in ur situation! I am also curiouse as to what responses u get for this question because we have tried so many things and have had little to no success! Good luck, i hope things work out!

Yes, well today I am planning on letting him watch 15 movies if that's what keeps him content and not angry while I do 15 loads of laundry!!!!!! lol I will keep you posted - and I am sure I will keep venting! It's nice to be able to do that safely on here:)
