shouting no and being cheeky

Postby Hunnybunny22 » Fri Jun 24, 2011 4:28 am

my son was 2 in may and since then hes been a nightmare. temper tantrums, banging his head on the floor when he doesnt get his own way, whining, being emotional about everything and scared of everything that makes a noise even the things he used to like.
he has recently started shouting no at me all the time when giving instructions and asking him questions... is it me or did i already go through this stage when he first learnt to speak.... gggrrrrrrr
hes also shouting back and making a growling noise when i discipline him. we use the naughty step and when he is good hes rewarded so we do the right thing in that scheme of things. does anyone have any good tips for getting through this stage?

Sorry, no great advice - but wanted to say that I could have written your post! My son was 2 in Jan. He is beautiful but has really tested me since turning 2! His favourite word is No and he does this frowning/growling thing... Anytime I ask him to do something, I know what the answer is. Now, I just get him to choose between 2 things so that he feels like he has a bit of control and praise him for doing the right thing/making the right decision etc. He knows what the time out stwp is and we use it ever few days after a warning.... Unfortunately thy're testing us and trying to get a bit of independance. This too shall pass! :D Hang in there!
