    Only thing that SOMETIMES helps is when I legit get close to his face and say it’s ok, can you tell me or point to me what it is that you want? And if can’t then I say would you like a hug? And 7/10 times he will say yes to a hug and it helps calm him down........ toddlers are something I never imagined would be so hard lol

    How is he verbally? I got a book that’s like my first 100 words and we read that thing like clock works. Simply because it has every day items in it and I want him to know how to say/identify them to help with the frustration and ultimately the tantrums. The book legit has like couch, cup, bed, toilet, Bear. Regular stuff and I think that somewhat helps communication

    Haven't really noticed any patterns..usually occurs when he wants to do or doesn't want to do something. He has a very good vocabulary but at that moment he closes up and just screams at the top of his lungs. I try hugging, talking calm even redirecting him but he just wont have it. With this said there r times I am able to get him to calm down.

    There are time when I can't keep cool and yell at him and when I catch myself I feel horrible full of guilt...ugh I want to do what is right but ugh so hard. My oldest son now 16 never went through these tantrum it was completely different..smh...

    My 2yr old does the same thing! If he is screaming his head off and getting mad at me, (after I have tried talking it out with him) I just calmly pick him up and put him in a different room. Then I go back to the room I was in and sit down like I dont notice. I tell him he can come back in with mommy if he is done throwing a fit. If he comes in still crying and screaming, I just point to the other room and tell him "nope, you have to go in the other room if you are going to throw a fit. Mommy does not want to listen to that. If you are done, you can come back in here and we can play." 9/10 times he stops, asks for a mommy hug, and comes and plays. 1/10 times he will go back in the other room to continue screaming and being dramatic... 🙄 this probably wont work with every kid, but the worst punishment in his mind is to be put somewhere away from me.
