Re: 17 month old throwing tantrums to nurse
I would try to be as patient as humanly possible during my lo's tantrum/demanding episodes. as his language skills develop he will
gain more control over his outbursts.
But i would draw the line at allowing my LO to kick or scratch me. for me, that sort of behavior needed to be nipped in the bud.
I would have to remind myself to make eye contact while trying to repair an undesirable behavior.
For us, eye contact really helped tone down an out of control tantrum.
