This is a new one for me, so I'm hoping someone else has a clue about what's going on. For the past week, M has thrown a fit every day when I pick him up from daycare. He's initially happy to see me, but then when I try to gather his things and get him ready to leave, he freaks out about something.
One day he had a fit because he saw his cup of milk, but it was empty, so he couldn't drink any of it. I offered him a cup of water, but that just made him more mad, and he threw it across the room and started screaming. Other days he's freaked out over me packing his bag, putting on his jacket, and putting on socks. I don't think he's really upset over these individual things, but he's clearly upset about something. I don't think he wants to stay at daycare all night and not go home with me, but even if that's what he wants, it's not an option! He's thrown a tantrum at pick-up every day this week and I'm starting to dread picking him up. He's usually fine once we get out the door.
Any ideas on how to deal with this or what I can do to prevent it?
