My four year old son dislikes the word no and if it is said he just throws himself in the floor and throws himself around the house. Some days I feel as if I am compromising with my four year old and it's not something that I like to do.
So here lately, I have tried the whole ignore him and it will go away but then he comes to me and starts pushing or hitting and it seems to anger him more to know that I do not feed into his tantrum. He throws out the "I hate you" line and it kills me every time.
A friend of mine says to not take that to heart that all he is saying is he doesn't have any freedom? How true is this and is there a better way to handle the situation other than compromising or ignoring him?
