little fits

There are two surefire ways to spark Mason's quick temper: put him in the stroller to leave after playing at the park and tell him it's time to go inside after strolling up and down the walk in front of our house. It doesn't matter how long he's played at the park or walked outside, or how hot and exhausted he is. Mason is relentless. When he wants something, or wants to do something, he has a one-track mind.

First, he ignores my instructions and tries to keep playing or walking. Next, he relaxes his body and throws himself on the ground, all while crying and yelling. I pick him up and he tries to get back down. Of course, these scenes always occur in front of friends and neighbors.

Mason just turned one year. Isn't he a little young to start acting like this?

Hey, if anyone's ever been a parent, they've dealt with the "leaving the park" fit. Just keep smiling, push down that arched back, and buckle that little guy in! And enjoy the adorable face on that upset boy! ;)

it is definitely not too early! H became anti-stroller, high chair, carseat, etc... was she became mobile. It really changes everything when they can move :-) He is so cute!

I had the same issue with Isabella. I started early (probably before she even understood it) in giving her a "warning" that we were leaving in 10 minutes (again understanding she has no real concept in time) and then again at 5 minutes and finally we left when planned. It eventually lessened e drama and gave her some time to prepare for e disappointment ;) good luck!
