Help! My 20 month old is having horrible temper tantrums the second he wakes up or the second he comes home from daycare. For example, this morning I went in his room at 5:50 to get him when he was crying and he sat down and yelled "no!" He flailed around when I was changing his diaper and he just wanted to run to the pantry for food. I gave him food, but when he saw me shut the pantry he started screaming and crying again for no reason.
He doesn't react to a swat on the butt, and I can't talk to him to calm him down. He just screams louder.
