Pookah needs anger management lessons.
Or rather, I need lessons on how to handle his anger.
In the last few weeks, or days literally, my sweet easy going child has turned into this angry, crying, whining, hitting, throwing monster child that I don’t recognize.
I’ve tried being stern and just saying no. Very firmly.
I’ve tried tapping him on his hand.
I’ve tried putting him in baby time out( basically, sitting him beside me and not letting him get up).
I’ve tried holding his hand when he tries to hit me for the fifty 11th time. And saying no.
I’ve tried to redirect.
I’ve tried to ignore.
I’ve tried to bribe.
Nothing works. The behavior continues.
And I wonder where it came from? Where did the screaming come from?
Where did the hitting come from? I’ve never hit him. C-Dub and I don’t hit each other. he doesn’t watch violent television. Only Dinosaur Train.
Where did this attitude come from???
Where is my sweet baby?
Does anyone else have this problem or have you had this problem? If so, what did you do?
