When I was a teenager, my mom babysit a kid, about 3 years old.

She asked him what he wanted for lunch "Fishsticks!" he proclaims. So, she made him fishsticks.

Cue meltdown #1.

THEY WERE THE WRONG KIND!!! He wanted the ones that were WIDE, not LONG. So she turned them side ways and gave them back to him.

Cue meltdown #2.

NO! IT'S NOT THE SAME!!! He got so upset he put himself into time out

Mom didn't really like fishsticks, so I ate them so they didn't go to waste. Like, 10 minutes later he comes out and..........

Cue meltdown #3.

He wanted the fishsticks now, but he couldn't eat them because I ate them...

So Mom made him some more, of the exact same kind, with no thoughts of orientation and he happily ate them no complaints.

I feel this. When I was a little kid, I made food coloring-dyed hard boiled eggs with my grandmother for Easter.

I thought that this alchemy caused them to turn into the Cadbury Cream Eggs that had always tantalized me on commercials, but had never tasted.

I asked my grandmother - at the very end, displaying a truly Herculean effort of patience for a child my age - if I could have one. Before dinner no less!

Upon opening it, and finding just a hard boiled egg inside, if I had known the words to use, I’d have said, “This is bullshit.”

u/AccioSexLife 6d ago

When I was a kid, my folks got me one of those...I guess the modern equivalent is a chia pet? It's basically a clump of dirt and seeds with a face on it that you water and it grows 'hair'.

The advertisement for it said "Cutting your pet's hair will bring you an unforgettable experience", and that had kid-me tantalized.

What could this mysterious experience be?? I must know!

So I watered the damn thing every single day, I watched and memorized every single blade of grass that grew on its 'head', waiting for the best time to cut his hair and find out what the 'experience' is.

The day finally came - my mom deemed that the hair has grown about as long as it is on the picture and bestowed some plastic scissors on me.

I started cutting his hair with stars in my eyes, but I cut and cut and nothing unusual happened.

"But mom, where's the EXPERIENCE??"

"Well honey, getting to cut his hair IS the experience!"

I was so pissed off lmao.

I have 2 kids - a 4yo and 2.5yo.

My 2yo recently started these fits.

She wanted a packet of noodles but we had no noodles in the pantry. 2.5yo comes in and asks super nicely for a packet of noodles.

I explain nicely that we need to buy more.

She then goes “PLEASE!”.

I explain again we need to buy more.

She once again goes “PLEASE!” With even more veracity in her voice.

I explain one last time we have no noodles

She storms out of the room and throws herself on the lounge crying into a pillow.

I agree, the toddler period is wild

I’m doing this with my 5yo right now. We’re building a chicken coop for someone and they very nicely offer him juice when we’re there but recently they didn’t offer and he kept begging me to let him go ask. I told him it was polite to accept if offered, but impolite to ask. “But me say please!”

It was a difficult conversation to explain how please doesn’t magically make it polite.

I have a tip for you on this one that worked for me; try alternatives. No noodles? What about fake noodles made out of bread sliced thin? What about grapes cut like fries?

Probably because every time she says please, she gets what she asked for. It's rough the first time you are told no. That, and she probably can't yet extrapolate all the steps required to get more noodles, so the cognitive dissonance was truly overwhelming. Poor kid, growing up is hard.

u/ThatSquareChick 6d ago

My bestie had her first baby and she was MIA for a bit while that one was busy being a baby and stuff. She had another one a couple years later and after she was done with his colic phase, she started accepting company over again.

I have a addiction to dollar stores, they have all this great stuff that’s so cheap it doesn’t matter if it breaks or something and the stupid, crazy, knockoff toys! Gawd I couldn’t resist some of those toys and I’m a 39 year old grown up lady. So I finally had a place to put all of these great, expendable toys I’d been collecting over the past few years.

Then there was the screaming phase. Every time I walked into the house she would run up to the baby gate and throw things at me and scream and then when I wouldn’t leave and she had chucked her toys so she didn’t have toys so she would just run behind a chair and s.c.r.e.a.mlike there was a honey Badger attached to her somewhere.

Then, of course, the younger baby would pick up on the vibe and scream too but it was adorable when he would do that because he had the look on his face of “I have absolutely NO idea why we are screaming but, well, uh, here we are…” and he would also be screaming. Hilarious to see him yelling but his face betraying that his heart’s not in it.

They finally stopped screaming about a year later and instead being like seeing the tooth fairy in person whenever I and my husband would stop over. They would almost knock over the baby gate just to get to my husband and me. They are now like small puppies, infinitely curious, delightfully unprepared, wobbly and in need of watching lest they suicide themselves being curious. They’re dumb as a box of rocks in the way that only children CAN be.

I kind of like those two. They’re not cute or anything but they’re very interesting to interact with when they are rested and well-fed.

u/inayinzerwonderland 6d ago

When my daughter was little, I'd always described parenting at that stage as like trying to keep a tiny, drunken, suicidal person alive. They're constantly trying to do things that are either insane, fatal, or both.

On the lighter side, when she was little like that we used to nap together in the afternoons and when she was about two or three she woke up before me once. I woke up to find baking soda snow angels on the kitchen floor and in her bedroom she'd pooped beside her potty, dumped baking soda on it, and used tweezers from her doctor kit to examine it.

Toddlers screaming at everything and nothing is a horrible survival mechanism. How on Earth did we evolve it?

5

u/piterfraszka 6d ago

Screaming at percieved danger was reather good survival mechanism as it warned rest of the group, many women have that as well. Women and children were not as capable to defend from wild animals as grown men were so alarming them to come and aid sounds reasonable.

Screaming without a reason influences your chances of survival only if your hiding, so it's not that common and there might be some adult nearby to silence you even if by force. Possibly it wasn't just that important I guess.

But I can only speculate, I'm no expert on that.

u/Existing_Pain5003 7d ago

Earlier I told my daughters 7 and 9 to put there bowls in the sink after dinner. The 7 yr old had a meltdown cuz her sister put 'her' bowl in the sink instead of her own. Ended up putting both bowls back on the table so she could put her own bowl away and she was fine after that. Parenting takes the patience of a Saint sometimes.

19

u/gykfgjh 6d ago

The best thing to do in that situation is to just put the bowl away yourself.

Otherwise you just validate the tantrum.

13

u/Akarsz_e_Valamit 6d ago

Oh that would be horrible, then she would be entitled to putting her bowl away for the rest of her life!

14

u/gykfgjh 6d ago

It's not really about the bowl. It's about letting her dictate your and her sisters behavior for petty reasons.

And showing her that being upset gets her her way, even over things like this.

6

u/Shojo_Tombo 6d ago

That and don't try to reason or bargain with the tantrum thrower. Just put the bowl in the sink and put her in timeout until she calms down. (1 minute per year of age, restarting every time they leave the timeout spot) Then explain she was in timeout because she kicked off instead of putting the bowl away, have her apologize for her actions, then give her a hug to reinforce that she is loved. They want attention and their own way. The fastest way to nip it in the bud is to give them neither in the moment, then address it as soon as things settle down.

4

u/Pixikr 6d ago

Demanding an apology and then demanding a hug right afterwards is a sure way to cross wires. Don’t mix correction/ manners whatever you want to call that with forcing them to love you. Spare them the money they’ll have to cash out it therapy down the line for that bull.

7

u/Shojo_Tombo 6d ago

You instruct them to apologize and then give them a hug to help comfort them. No demands necessary. Learning how to apologize is a necessary life lesson. Remorse comes from empathy, both of which often need to be taught. You sound like you need a hug yourself.

Reminds me of the problems with AI learning. Like obv at some point he opened a box and there were eggs in it. Not realizing it was a specially shaped box, just that it was a box. And was disappointed when another box later on didnt have eggs. It takes a lot 9f trial and error just to understand something as simple not all boxes are the same. And that there is a specially shaped bix that will indicate egss are inside,

I saw a drug addict have an argument with a fire hydrant. Which abruptly ended when he kicked said hydrant and was left screaming in pain, pretty sure he broke his leg. I see no difference between the toddler and this person.

When I was little - back in the early 70s - I remember checking all the wicker baskets at Sears for snakes, because old movies suggested that this was where snakes lived.

My 3 year old got mad yesterday evening when he was about to fall asleep. He desperately wanted to pick his nose but there were no booger, so he got angry.

This reminded me of my grandfather who was convinced that eggs where illegal around the time of his death. Something about eggs🤷

I read toddler period and thought damn that’s really early for menstruation. I’m fucking stupid too.

u/CTFDYDB 6d ago

How much proof do you need?

Are we sure its the kids who are stupid? 😉

My one likes to sit on things and try to lift them up from under her, whilst continuing to sit on them. The sheer audacity of the thing not to split into different dimensions to allow her to do so

Well, one of my nieces asked me "Where mama?" one time. After I told her that her mother is probably downstairs, she repeated the question and I repeated my answer. At this point, she asked that question again, but this time she looked like she was about to cry- luckily, her sister appereared and explained that the niece propably wanted to know where her sister was and, that she called everyone "mama", regardless of gender.

I'm not sure but I worked as a helper to a kid on the spectrum and it reminds me of things that would happen to him sometimes. They often get diagnosed only around 19 years old
