A Toddler Thing??

Postby buggie » Mon Apr 08, 2013 5:18 am

Oh my god, I'm going nuts. The boys are in a crying and screaming about everything stage. They scream nonstop during meals, but nothing is wrong because they'll let out a screech and arch and flip their lid, then half a second later they're fine and happy. They scream bloody murder when they have to get dried off after a bath. They just scream and scream all day. Is it a toddler thing? Are they pissed because they can't do things for themselves?

They are usually such happy kids but man are they screamers right now.

Welcome to toddlerhood! :) What you are describing sounds like our household. I think they do get frustrated because they want to be so independent, yet they physically can't. They also do want to communicate with us. The new thing in our household is one of the twins HAS to turn the lights on and off himself or it is a major meltdown. It does amaze me how quick they can turn it on and off. I haven't found the key to dealing with this so if you do let me know ;). A lot of times I just ignore their fits and they stop. Good luck!
