Yep, I am smack dab in the middle of them. While most of the time my son is very affectionate, humorous and just a typical boy, we have hit the full blown end of the world tantrums. For example, I tell him he can't have any more grapes because he's had like 30 of them and how about some toast. He starts repeating "NO NO NO!" and running away from me. Then he's back demanding again. I suggest other things to eat, or suggest not hitting "C" with the play golf stick, that if he does it again he'll be locked in his room.
Well I reached that breaking point yesterday when his behavior got to an all time unacceptable. He was fighting with "C" over her blanket she calls "taggy" that she brings every day to my house. Its hers along with her little froggy doll she brings and its only hers.
I do not let J play with it as I don't let "C" play with J's blanket and dolly. They both know its theirs and J should know by now that he is not allowed to have "C's" blankie. But I think he takes it from her just to see her reaction and despite lots of corner time and telling J he has to tell "C" he is sorry and to give it back to her, he sometimes refuses and throws himself on the floor in a fit of rage or screams at the top of his lungs back at me. So this time I grabbed him, I yelled in his face "NO!, that is "C's", give it back to her!"
