Quoting ashleynb1991:" I try to calm him down by walking around with him but he wont stop screaming. He just gets angry about ... [snip!] ... I cannot passify him or anything. I feel like if I try to restrain him that makes him more mad and scream more. Idk what to do."
Yeah sounds a lot like my boy. Momma some days it's HELL , I never know what's going to set him off, but I've gotten better with dealing with it.
When he starts pitching a fit , first thing I do is take a deep breath and remind myself this is his only way of communicating .. helps me to stay calm. 2nd thing I do is set him down and wait till he starts to calm down. Once he starts to calm down, I talk quietly and calmly seems to calm him more.
Now that he's older 19 months he's gotten a lot better, and I can reason with him a little more. I still have to let the temper tantrum run it's course .I can't try hugging him/ restraining him and sometimes need to stay out of his reach from throwing stuff and biting till he is calm.
There is nothing wrong with taking a step back momma when you need too, just make sure he's safe and your watching him. If you have someone that can give you a little breather there to help by all means call in reinforcements . My hubby can't do a blasted thing with our boy so it's just me dealing with him when he's upset. hope this helps a little
