    Toddler biting and hiting me

    I'm at my wits end. I think DS is teethiing his back molars but his behaviour is awful. He has been biting and hitting me and it has reduced me to tears, which I know is not the right thing to do..but after a long day of it that was all I felt like doing. He is hardly sleeping during the day. Any tips would help me. I don't want to show him I'm angry, I don't want to lose my temper. He is nearly 2.

    home sweet home.

    it is horrible isn't it?

    On days like that my advice is 'get that kid outdoors'.

    Go to a park, beach, even a playcentre and distract, distract, distract.

    I find that if I'm stuck inside with a toddler on a rampage it just makes matters worse, get them outside and run them until they are all out of energy.

    Here's hoping tomorrow is a better day.

    there have been lots of threads recently about amber teething necklaces and how they can really help behaviour related to teething... maybe getting one would help????
