Any suggestions on how to handle a 3 yr old that wants to be constantly held and if your not holding him, chases you around the house pulling on your clothes and becomes very aggressive. we also been having real power struggles at bedtime and in the middle of the night....well, all day. He literally is making me crazy

My only suggestion would be to tell him why you can't hold him and why you don't like him chasing you and pulling on you. My daughter will be 3 in August and I find if I explain things to her, she eventually gets it. It may take a time or two, but if you break it down in terms he will understand (if I am carrying you, I can't make your lunch or if you are pulling on me, it will take me longer to do things before we can play again) it may come more quickly!

Good luck!!! :)
