Joshua is my wild child. I've never denied that and have always admitted he's been far more daring then his older brother ever thought about being. Recently he has taken up temper tantrums, biting, throwing things and saying words such as "Poo-Poo" and "Stupid". I understand the word poo poo since that is a word we commonly use in this household such as "Joshua, do you have a poo poo diaper?". Stupid, however, is not a word we use in our household which leads me to believe he picked it up from a movie, television show or better yet one of our playmates.
I'm having a hard time with discipline actions with Joshua. We started out with time outs and time in the corner. We then progressed to spanks on the butt (with diaper or pull-up on, of course). Then I started putting him in time out in his room, which went over like a dead weight considering he has free reign of the toy box in there. Sigh. So, I just don't know what to do with him anymore. He's really been bad lately and my pregnancy hormones mixed with a whiny, badly behaved three year old just do not mix! I keep hoping and praying that it's just a phase he's going through and that things will get better.
So, tell me your two/three year old horrible acts stories. Please make me laugh because Lord knows Joshua is about to make me pull every strand of my hair out!
