This week has been particularly trying with Jack.
He screams ALL the time unless you are playing with him, allowing him to dig in the bin, eat a marble or playing in the pool.
He is fine if you allow him the above which is why I ruled out any form of illness – he eats, he sleeps, there is no temp or any other signs of him being sick – just the crying.
It is exhausting. He wants to be picked up and then you may not put him down – if you do all hell breaks loose and he actually makes his legs go wobbly so he can’t stand.
Josephine has been with us for almost year so she was around in the early days when Jack screamed and on Wednesday she said she had never heard him cry as much as he had that day!!!
Could it be seperation anxiety? He doesn’t seem to get too upset when I leave but gets VERY upset if David and I hold hands or hug or kiss – lol – he cried real tears over it last night.
Is it normal toddler behaviour? Do we ignore it? Punish him? What?
It is not so bad now but it is still there especially when we reprimand him or remove the bead from his mouth or life the bin where he can’t reach it :-/
