Tantrums..

I don't know if that word translates to you lot over there LOL but I mean throwing fits Lol

Tobey is into full dramatic fit throwing now and I can't help but laugh at him. For a while he did just cry when I said "no", but he's over that now Lol Now I have to tell him off, move him away, take stuff out his mouth etc and he sits (throws) himself on the floor, bends himself in half and crys banging his fists on the floor. DS1 just used to scream so this is new to me!

What do your LO's do?

Ronin sits and cries, but day care was telling me he did a get down on the floor and cry tantrum, but instead of throwing himself down dramatically like all the other kids, he carefully lowered himself down and then chucked the tantrum. They couldn't help but laugh.
I feel for them, they have 6 kids who are at the full blown tantrum all the time stage (all are about to transition to the toddler room in the next couple of months) 2 who are getting to that stage and a couple of itty bitties (like 5 months old).

Tantrum totally translates over here!! Evan will lay on the floor and be totally still, face in the carpet and cry. Or if I try to pick him up, he turns into a limp noodle and I can hardly get him up. Right now it's still at the funny stage.

Wendy, I bet that is funny to watch him lay down carefully and then throw the fit.

I know I can't wait to see it, but with the tantrum team in full swing at day care I am sure the full blown tantrums aren't far away.

He'll arch his back and throw himself on his side fake crying. His tantrums in the car involve his attempting to bang his head against his seat or throw toys across the car. I ignore them unless he has the potential to hurt himself.

Odin will have a meltdown but I can see the tantrums coming soon. Totally over things like taking away dangerous items or telling him that the power cord is indeed off limits still.

I still cringe thinking of ones that DS1 used to throw. I guess he still does but they are much more savvy with a little less on the floor action...lol.

he screams and cries really loud and sometimes bounces on his knees and waves his arms lol. I usually walk away or ignore him and that makes him more mad:p

Eleanor throws fits (cries, sticks out the bottom lip) when I take things away from her or tell her 'no', but it's not quite to tantrum stage yet. It's funny how these things are cute now, but won't be in a few months... :eek:

Teagan will sit and shriek at the top of her lungs. Sometimes she'll spin on her bottom a bit. Its usually initiated by me having to take something away from her for one reason or another.

Rowan has many different types of tantrums, including ones where she throws things, and others where she stomps her feet (that's new this week). My favorites are when she lays down on the ground, sticks her butt in the air and pushes herself around with her feet, while screaming.

But I have to admit, she always has a good reason for throwing them. I'm a terrible mom who takes gravel out of her mouth and won't let her play with sharp sticks, scissors, or electrical outlets.

Haha! This is funny - you are terrible Smile

I do NOT remember DD throwing tantrums like DS does this early! So, I was thinking maybe he was abnormal when he started throwing them about a month ago - right around his birthday!
His usual is to throw his head back & cry at the top of his lungs to where I think he must be terribly hurt, but he will throw his head so far back that he will fall over backwards, dropping from standing to the floor.

Simon has tantrums alot too. He also does the throw his head back and cry, which often results in him falling backwards. He also sort of dones this head banging thing too which looks funny. I try not to laugh when he's having tantrums but it's hard because I find it funny. Lol

Ronin chucks tantrums for similar reasons, seriously I don't know where he finds half the stuff I have to take off him.

Oh, now that requires a video!! Lol Smile Sophie will screech like a banshee, squeeze her fists into little balls and shake if you say no, take away something she shouldn't have or if she is annoyed at her sister! LOL!! It's hilarious but I feel like really bad when she does it...
