This is new development for him. He's done the usual paddy throwing and then gotten over it. He screams/shouts when he doesn't get what he wants, which apart from being loud and annoying isn't too much of a problem. This new turn is proving to be a bit more of a problem. He will throw things around the house, grabbing what he can, and tonight tried to block my way on the stairs and started trying to kick me in the stomach (I'm 19 weeks pregnant with no.3). Manhandled him off the stairs as I was worried about him falling down, and then left him to it and went to see dd (5). In the time she read her story to me he totally tore his room apart. I've left it so he can tidy tomorrow but would love some ideas on how to handle him a bit more effectively. I'm fed up of things being broken because he is having a tantrum and throwing them! Oh it's also being accompanied with lots of I don't like you mummy, I wish you weren't my mummy, you're not my best friend, etc, etc!
Tonight it was set off by him getting up and down during dinner and generally mucking around. I gave him a couple of warnings that I would get rid of his dinner if he didn't sit and eat it. He did so I did. He then wanted pudding which I refused, cue massive throwing, kicking, shouting tantrum!
