Anyway, I know that the clock is ticking at 2.24 am and im still here, in front of the computer and I too realise that Im working tomorrow. But let me tell you this, I went back home around 9+pm, Emir demanded me to breastfeed him in the car which i refused and mulalah satu cerite.. But guess what, with Emir shouted, cried and whatsoever, I managed to have my dinner without any rushed. Hehehe. Yeah, i ignored him. Then only I consoled him, which took a while also and at last, he slept. The not so best part was, I slept exactly after my dinner and I forgot to drink a glass of water. and 140 baru terjage. So, tak sampai sejam la kan..
Anyway, my question here, is toddler temper tantrum is normal? Emir recently has this temper tantrum all the time. Well, this is seriously something new to us. I understand at this age, he is know trying to show his personality, where more things must be done in his own way. Sometimes, I feel like he has the mothers of all temper tantrums, I do lost my temper sometimes, but most of the time, I managed to take a deep breath and resume my work as normal.
Emir can "perform" his temper tantrum anytime and anywhere. Somtimes in front of the big crowd in the shopping mall, sometimes in the middle of the night and it just cause by a small issue. Like today, he demanded me to bf him in the car, padahal I told him to wait until we reached home (which is about 5 minutes away), mind you, he knows well that we were nearing to our home. Then we parked our car, half way to our house, he screamed and demanded to lock the car, which I refused again. Sebab dah half way, lepas tu, i have to carry him and im tired. Then, masuk je rumah, he wouldnt let me to take off my tudung, and refused to bf (pulak dah). I told him I wanted to eat, and he just repeatedly shouted "Emir tak nak kuku abu - i.e. Emir tanak susu Ibu.., I told him, kalau tak nak, then let me eat. but he against it. Since I was damn starving, so I just peacefully have my dinner. You know what he did, he throw all the things on the table (duit syiling, paper), I makan bungkus je.. and tried to grab my food- to throw it away. He climbed up front left right since I on the other hand, tried to protect my food. And with his long fingernails, he scratched my face.. (sakit woo)
If this is a sign of having a second child syndrome, alhamdulillah lah but, it is not. Im surely it is not. Ini baru satu, banyak lagi cerite. KAlau dekat Tesco, lagi tensen, nak tolak trolly sendiri, i mean the big trolley and hit everyone there. haih.. and with his Papa recently, he insisted to "drive" the car when Papa was driving the car and Papa jentik dia sekuat hati, If not, he forced himself to be on the driver seat. Bahaya tu.
Hmm.. how do you deal with them? Pukul, ignore?, in Emir's case, softly advising him when he is on his tantrum DOES NOT WORK. But the best part, when he is already calm down, he will tell back the story like "adi, Emir want fetch Abu, papa wat Emir, I want car, Papa ched "Emir sheat, Papa aiv, papa.., Emir kai (Translation: Tadi, Emir nak fetch Ibu, Papa buat Emir, Emir nak drive, Papa said, Emir seat, papa drive, lepas tu Emir cry) (suara siap buat suara garau tu, imitating his father yang marah sambil tunjuk the way papa dia jentik dia..)..
