Daytime Progress Lost by Evening Transgress
I am a nanny and my 1 y/o charge has recently started having tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants. I'm talking shaking, biting, hitting tantrums. Now be assured he is never, ever around behavior like this because for the most part it's just the 2 of us every day. So I have no idea where he learned it for one thing. How do I stop it? Do I ignore it in hopes he will eventually stop? It's hard because I feel as though I make tiny strides during the day by ignoring his tantrums, praising him when he uses his manners, and am stern with 'rules' (he's only 1 I know, but I mean the typical safety rules...no playing with cords, pulling on the curtains, etc.) When his parents come home they spoil him rotten...they respond to his tantrums by picking him up and babying him and giving him whatever he wants and it is SO FRUSTRATING because I feel like any progress I might be making during the day is lost in the evening. Does anyone have any advice for me? Thank you so much!
