I think we are heading down right now. V is back to his old behavior where he gets "stuck" on stuff. Things have to happen a certain way, or he needs to do a certain thing and I say no/not right now/in a little bit. And he gets "stuck", he cannot get past it. For example, he wanted a specific toy to take with him in the car. I said, ok, get it and let's go in 5 minutes. I reminded him we had to leave and of course he never got the toy. We simply did not have time anymore and I asked him to go in the car. Meltdown, crying,etc. I raised my voice "come on! we gotta go, we can't be late for picking up your brother". More crying and "booooooo, Mommy is mad at me". And that happens 15 to 20 times a day. Singled out, that is not much. But one crisis after another, it gets really old. Why does he get stuck like that???? Big meltdowns when he said bye to his Dad, even lots of crying when I had go out on my own for maybe 10 minutes altogether. If it's not V's way, we have a meltdown. But he does not act in a spoiled way. It's just that in the course of a regular day, things don't always work the way he thinks it should happen. When he is in that mood, I just really don't know what to do. Sure I make sure the meltdowns are controlled and don't last. But I wish there would be something to actually change his mood so I don't have to keep on putting out fires.
