So today started out much like every other with our Difficult Child small fights over having to be quiet til everyone wakes up (likes getting up 5-6am), then not wanting to eat breakfast but then all seems ok... might even be a good day. Food and dressed then playtime... but he wants to play then when given stuff to play leaves it sitting there and starts to complain about nothing to do.... but we get through that. Then lets watch cartoons before lunch, nope not what he wants to watch so not happy with the either.... finally get a compromise (since there is 3 others watching tv too) so off to make lunch, out of the room 1 min and our Difficult Child is climbing all over the other kids back in to settle that down, then back to lunch.. give Difficult Child 5 min warning for tv time over and off to lunch, but still tantrums when tv is shut off... makes it to the kitchen for lunch (doesnt like it tho) even tho its pizza and fruit... grrr... ok well then eat what you want of it then drink and some relax time (like everyday after lunch) we read or something else calm and quiet (otherwise little ones tired at suppertime) but it becomes full out screaming tantrum from our Difficult Child. we have a schedule its basically the same everyday but today he is still mad lunch wasnt what he wanted so he doesnt want to relax either... give him choice either downstairs or in his room but still continues tantrum. He gets taken to his room to calm down and he throws everything out of it, refuses to stay in there, and begins his punching hitting and kicking at me. I ignore it stand back far enough he cant reach me and on and on this goes for more then 30 mins...... I am not engaging, I reserve my feelings (scream into pillow later) but he still wont let it go...... HELP!
