And now, for the main reason you clicked to read, another Ask Mom question. This one is becoming all too familiar to me nowadays and I am struggling! Everett has started throwing these fall on the floor, flailing arms and legs, screaming fits that last the better part of an hour. An HOUR! Tonight he had another one and he was inconsolable. He didn't care for anything---nothing---nada---zip---zilch----zero! Being that he is not even one and a half I am struggling with what to do when this happens. Do I treat him like a seizure victim and just ride it out and hold his head while he flails about on the floor. I finally just scooped him up and put him in his crib until he settled down. Seriously, you should see this kid. He'll be walking and then in a split second he crumbles in mid stride and starts rolling around screaming and banging his head. Um, is this normal! Thankfully, it has only happened a few times over the past couple months, but I am fearing for the worst! I definitely see timeouts and toys being taken away in the future, but for a 17 month, what can I do? I just wish the little guy would use words to let me know what he wants instead of knocking his sweet head around on the floor!
