While I stand by my statement that Hayden has been all kinds of cute lately, he’s also been all kinds of trouble. Well, not all kinds, really—the big problems right now are hitting, biting, throwing things and tantrums.
Hitting, biting and throwing I class together. He generally does them just for a reaction, it seems, or maybe because it amuses him to do it. Sometimes, though, he does it out of frustration (gee, I wonder where he gets that from . . . ?).
Tantrums aren’t new, of course, and we’ve been working on them for a long time. I tell ya, though, the kid’s tenacious. Distraction has to be mighty good for it to get him off that subject.
So, any good advice in these areas? (As a reminder, and for first timers, Hayden is not quite two years old.)
