Im ashamed to say i think im losing control of my son.
He is hitting me, not listening when i say no, just learned to say 'f**k' Idk what to do. Ive tried time outs, ive tried ignoring his tantrums. Nothing. Its really starting to stress me out i feel like a failure like my son rules me.

How does he learn to say f**k? He clearly is hearing it somewhere, or he's trying to say something else.



It's kind of a toddler thing, though. He's testing his boundaries. Will he play with you?

Me on the phone. I know its my fault but i want him to stop.
And he has always been really independent he'll play with me for a little while but mostly wants to do his own thing.

He's 19 months old. Put him in a designated safe area until he calms down when he's lashing out. Otherwise, redirect his attention to something else. He's only doing what he sees at this age.

I think so, too. He can't say what he wants/needs, and he wants to see if he can get his way anyhow.

I dnt understand. He doesnt see anyone throwing a tantrum & he doesnt see anyone hitting / getting hit.
