Trying to find out if the ridiculously helter skelter life we're currently leading is in any way normal...envy

Ds very very rarely has ever lost it, gets over slights quickly. Dd on the other hand was every time something didn't go her way!

Average of 3. Occasional days of none, sometimes constantly!

The last week has been he'll. As for how many times ... I can't count that high !

Normally - between 1 and 5 tantrums a day; painful but manageable. Last week - between 10 and 20 on one day, and 5 - 10 most others. Proper headbanging, hysterical, nothing works. He's 2.6 and I've been promised it gets better the closer they get to 3, but he's speech delayed too so not counting on anything.

It's hell.

wine wine wine for us both.

I'm past counting, it's exhausting! DD was nothing like this but DS is a very talented tantrummer. He only turned 2 a few weeks ago and he's been like this for a few months now, God knows how long it will last. Mornings usually consist of tantrums about not getting to him fast enough in the morning then about going to him, getting weetabix instead of toast or the other way around, not being allowed to hit his sister, not being allowed to throw toys at his sister, banana being peeled for him, banana not being peeled for him, banana having to be touched by you in the process of giving it to him hmm and final one today so far was about having to have a nap. It's like living with a demented little psychopath. You can't win on anything, ever!
