Terrible twos what to do

Saturday, Dec. 26th 2009 2:23 PM

Two year old son is a pain

Okay I mean it in a nice way.  But my son is driving me crazy.  If I am not giving him my 100 % attention all day long he will do everything in his power to annoy me to death.   The minute I try and get any house work done he is under my feet.   If I do not stop what I am doing he will start in pushing, hitting, kicking and yes screaming until I give him all of my attention.   I can not even take a  shower without him acting up outside the bathroom door.

When he was a little baby he was so sweet.  Okay I know he is only two but before the twos he was able to be by his self and let me get my work done.  Is this normal?  I know people joke about terrible twos but this is getting old real quick and I am not sure what to do.   Advise please

Oh if it helps,  my husband is working 12 hour days six days a week two jobs.  He needs to work this hard since we do need the money.  I try never to make him deal with home issues as much as I can.  I like for him to come home to a peaceful house.  Lucky for me he comes home late and misses most of my son antics.

    Well kicking and hitting to get his way should be stop asap. You need to make it clear to him that acting that way is not acceptable. Give him time outs. Do not give him the attention he wants for bad behavior.

    Give him more attention when he is being good and no attention for the kicking or hitting or any bad behavior. Right now it seems to me that he is just doing anything he wants knowing that good or bad he get your undivided attention he is looking for.

    Well some time two years old can go though a very bad faze. However I agree that the kicking and hitting is not something to just put up with.

    Try and set some rules and time lines with your son. Let him know from this time to that time you are all his but that you need time to do your work and he need to be good while you are busy. Reward him when he is being good so he will want to keep it up.
