18mo mad and aggressive
Hi parents, I have an 18 month old right now and he has quite a personality. Since he was younger he would never smile back at people on the street like other babies, or most of the time it was like that, and now if someone talks to him he gets mad and he turns around and when someone wants to carry him like my mom sometimes he gets aggressive and starts hitting himself. When we’re at home (I’m a SAHM) he’s not like this. Yes he gets mad during the day when I take something away from him that he shouldn’t have just like any other baby, but daddy gets home and he doesn’t wanna give him a kiss he just turns around, and sometimes even screams. There’s days that he’s in a good mood and he’s really good with everyone but that doesn’t happen very often. I try to explain to him that it’s not okay to scream or act aggressive or hit people, but when I’m telling him he just gets mad ☹️ I’m desperate. I’m wondering if anyone can relate to this or what I can do for him to be more social. I must say his dad and I don’t have the best relationship and I believe that has something to do with his reactions, I’ve even thought of splitting for the best of our baby.
