I used to hate hearing this because I too was like you and insisted it was something else but now 7 kids later I know how thing tend to go. :/ hope things get better soon momma.

I wish there was a way to fix what he's doing. My mom decided to tell me that "I already lost control of him at age 2" I'm not sure how much more of this I can take before I pull a "Brittney" (go crazy and shave my head) lol

Honey, he sounds like a normal toddler and if he is meeting all of his developmental milestones with no concerns, he will grow out of it. All I can offer you in the way of advice at this time is to listen to him and make him feel validated, even a 1 year old knows when they are being "heard". Once you know what it is he trying to tell you, associate that feeling or object with the word and an action where appropriate to help him learn how to communicate with you. As a mother and a childcare professional/teacher, I HATE time out! I am more of the 'let the punishment fit the crime" and redirection person; for example, when my dd is getting into the trash, she has to help clean it up, wash her hands, and then I move her on to something else AWAY from the trash. When I run into children who throw tantrums like this, I make sure they are in a safe place (away from a wall or other object that could hurt them) and let them throw their tantrum - I tell them, that I love them and when they are done with their tantrum, they can come back and talk to me, then walk away. In the store, just ignore them....if you keep talking to them, pleading with them, making empty threats...it only fuels the fire. Good luck hon!
