Peyton has been an absolute terror the past few days. He has definately hit the terrible two's early. His temper tantrums seriously make me want to scream! How do you deal when your child is throwing a temper tantrum for NO reason?

I pretend like I can't see or hear him or I put him in his play pen and put a movie on and that keeps him quiet for a little while, usually. He's just recently started trying to pull us to things he wants and attaching himself to me so it's been more difficult because now when he throws a fit he follows me around and hits me or pulls my pants down :?

If there is no talking to him and he's kicking and screaming then i usually i put him in his room and tell him that his behavior is not okay and close his door. He freaks out in his room but eventually calms down, if he's hurting himself like hitting his head and stuff then i go in there and tell him that is not okay and why i put him in his room and to calm down i tell him his options and then i close the door again, once he calms down he comes out of his room.

Last night while we were eating I literally moved his plate over so it wouldn't fall off the table and he flipped out. Throwing himself backwards and refusing to eat except on his terms. I just held him until he calmed down the he decided he wanted to eat again. I can't handle this every single day.

I ignore her and just let her do her thing. Although I can't help but laugh at her sometimes because I am thinking "what the hell is wrong with you"

DS has stopped eating almost entirely. He will eat fruits and some veggies and that's it other than junk food. No meat except bologna. Toast and poptarts are the only thing for breakfast. Sometimes if I put him in his high chair for lunch he screams like he's terrified, throws himself back and forth in his chair so hard he moves it all the way across the room and refuses to eat for the rest of the day. For dinner last night he ate two bites of broccoli and then signed "all done" and refused to eat the rest of the night. I took him to the doctor because it got so bad and he just said to ignore it and he would eat if he wanted to, but we're going to have "behavioral issues" with him. Sigh,
