I am curious to know what other parents do to manage this.
I don’t give in to the behaviour, and they are not used to getting everything they want, the minute they want it. They know about working for things and waiting for birthdays and whatnot. Typically I am not trampled by temper tantrums, but rather it is the act of constantly having to repeat myself and wondering if they will ever get it… And when I whine about it to my parents, they just say, “All kids are the same. You were like that too once upon a time…” Gotta wonder what exactly they mean by that?
