Its everytime he doesnt get his own way, Im at the end of my tether with this and his tantrums constantly. any advice on how to deal with the situation
I'd just ignore it. Ds 3 tomorrow often tells me he wants daddy, particularly when I am cross with him. Or I get "go away mummy".
I also get "i hate you mummy" "i wish daddy was here i like him better" "go away mummy" from my stroppy 3 year old DD! I just ignore it and she comes back for a cuddle when she's over it
I sometimes reply with an upbeat "Oh that's a shame because I really like/love you!"
Don't take any notice. I just used to say 'that's ok because I love/like you'. Have it as a stock response and don't alter in any way-they get over it and you get the next phase!
