If the child struggles to get free, I calmly say, “I’m going to hold you and keep you safe until you can calm yourself down.” The minute the kid calms down, I open my arms and leave it up to them if they want to get off my lap or not. Often, they will just sit for another minute or two and cuddle.

After using that techinque for years with several kids, one of my little ones would run to me and say, “Hold me! I’m gonna blow!” Then she would carry on for a minute or two while I held her.

My three year old girl, hates me, loves daddy so much it hurts (so she relishes in telling me). One on one she is awesome, a true delight, involve daddy or the outside world and she is a head case!! I literally am at my wits end!! nine long months until she turns 4! and crazily I have decided to do this all again and am 17 weeks pregnant!!

My toddlers (4 of them), all had difficult “twos”, (which started at about 18 months), but by age 3 they were done with snot-slinging temper tantrums and could be reasoned with. They had much more language by then.
