Having trouble with a strong minded 3 yr old

I'm a single mom of my 3 yr old son and I'm really struggling to deal with his tantrums and behaviour. Some times he reduces me to tears. Any tips?

Hi Laura,
all I can offer in advice is you need to get a control on him now before he gets older and you wont be able to control him at all. Discipline him and follow through every time he does it, if you are consistent he will then learn he cannot do that to you anymore. I am telling you from experience and I wish I would have done this when my son is 3 but he is now 7 and way more difficult to manage at times but things have gotten a lot better and they will for you too. Also, its very important you take care of your self, take a nice bath or read a book when he's napping, try doing something nice for yourself, you can never go wrong with a little self care to take the stress off. I wish you good luck and hope everything works out for you:)
