So, I'm in the middle of moving- again. For the second time in two weeks (first to my parents house, and now to my new apartment in Minnesota).|
I understand it's hard on kids, especially pre-talking, to move a lot, to have your surroundings changing, but my kid is out of control.
She's been having temper tantrums like I've never seen. She slams her head into me, my face, my chest, kicks me, hits me, and if she can't hit me (if I walk away, or she's in the car seat), she hits herself, over and over. And screams, this primal scream that i can't even begin to deal with.
I don't even know how to handle it. I go from trying to breath deeply and hold her, to almost throwing her against a wall (I didn't, I just picked her up and then set her down again).
Everything is a struggle- getting up in the morning, putting on cloths, getting her to eat, god forbid GOING anywhere and I dread nap time/bed time.
