Our son started nursery a month ago and since then we have massive meltdowns on most days.
Does it get better>?
We aer so tired and stressed.
Rays of light and parenting advice to get through it welcome.

Have you ruled out physical triggers for the tantrums? Doubt it is all physical, but is your DS getting enough sleep/rest/food/hydration? How many hours is he doing at nursery? If it is a lot, then he could be knackered and tab trumping badly because of that. Does he still nap? Does he have quiet time when he gets back from nursery? Bring bedtime forward?

Regardless of length of time at nursery, it would be a huge change to routine and likely to be very stimulating and tiring. Check that he is still getting to eat and drink regularly (sometimes this can get overlooked in the rush? Especially drinking...)

I am sure that I will get better as he gets used to it physically and emotionally.
