My little boy is 2 and a half and has the worst tantrums ever, he punches and kicks and lashes out, he's just had the worst one yet which has left me very shocked, worried and in floods of tears. He has thrown toys, banged his head on the floor, pulled his hair, banged the door so hard it's knocked a hole in the wall even though there is a stopper on the carpet to try to prevent this from happening, tried to pull the TV off the side and just thrown himself all over, he has carpet burns on his knees and elbows and bangs on his face and head and looks like a beaten child. I tried to calm him down but got kicked in the stomach for it, I'm currently 31 weeks pregnant and at a total loss as my OH is away for 10 days and I haven't got anyone else to talk to. What am I dong wrong????? I took everything out of his room I thought he could hurt himself on and he has now worn himself out so much throwing himself on the carpet and banging his head he's gone to sleep. I keep going in to check he's ok given how much he has banged his head and he seems it. While he was in his room shouting and screaming all I could hear was him shouting no no no, I kept trying to go in to calm him down but he just kept lashing out at me and one kick to the stomach was enough to wind me I didn't want another or to upset him anymore than he already was. After he slammed the door I sat outside his room, he kept coming out and shouting No Mummy at me and go away It all started as he was naughty....he had been playing in his room and drew all over himself with his pens, I told him off and tried to clean him up but he kept moving away and saying No Mummy and shouting and screwing his face up so I tried the "stay here and when you feel ready apologise to mummy for saying no come downstairs...we've told him off before for saying no and shouting and hitting out before but it never works, anyway he came downstairs and the TV was on and he suddenly got so mad and started crying then tried to pull the TV down off the side, i jumped up and said don't do that and then it just escalated from there. What can I do??? Is there something wrong with him or is it me? I'm terrified of the impact the new baby will have on him and I don't want to have to keep dealing with this, it's getting me down so much. I'm sure nursery must think I hit him as he's always covered in bumps and bruises. I love my son so much I just don't know what to do...can anyone offer any advice?
