Topic: Oh toddlers
So I figure that after a certain age you should just start figuring things out for yourself, but I find advice is something I frequently need and since I have not one friend with kids i have no one to go by. So my son hasn't let me feed him since he was about 10 months old. I figured it was a phase but no, he's 17 months and still refuses assistance. He's a very messy eater so we are limited in food we give him since he refuses help. Anyone ever struggle with this? Also, what is in the realm of normal for hyperactivity in a toddler? I mean my son is go go go. He is busy busy busy and he's so busy there are moments I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack. I've never seen anything like it. Also, when we try to brush his teeth(he usually does this every night) he truly acts like he's being murdered. I mean like the possession. I wasn't like this at all when I was a child. Does anyone have any advice? I mean he's too independent and he is beyond hyperactive. Is this just how toddlers are?
