My son is 22months and has been a very sad child since he was a baby, he cries over everything- not having his way, getting dressed, undressed, dinner time, nappy changes even when he goes to sleep at night he regularly wakes up crying and I have to shush him back to sleep. I don’t why he is such an unhappy child. I am getting very stressed and also have another one on the way so I’m knackered. Is it me? I try to be calm and distract him with toys/ my phone. He has zero patience and gets very easily frustrated when he can’t do something and has recently started having tantrums where he throws himself on the floor kicking and crying in which I just ignore it.
I literally don’t know what to do, sometimes I wonder if he is actually mine because both me and my partner were very content and timid as young children.
