This is normal, right?
My son has been acting up a lot lately. He's three and whenever he doesn't get what he wants, he throws a fit. Today it was his Cheerios, for whatever reason, he was upset. I let him put his sugar in and he just threw a fit and didn't eat it. He threw his spoon at me (luckily it was a plastic baby spoon) so I took his hand and calmly put in his room explaining he's not allowed to throw things, specially at someone. He stayed in his room, even after I let him come out, and kicked the door and screamed.0. He finally came back out and I made him some more and he ate some of it.
The deal is if he and his sister eat it all, they get a treat. He ate about half and then when he said he was done and I cleaned up, he threw a fit over not getting a treat. I kept telling him he as to eat all his breakfast.
After he calmed down I let him and his sister draw with colored pencils. H e likes to carry the pencils to the coffee table himself, but after a few minuets, his sister wanted a new color. He had a hand full and wouldn't share. I told him to giver her just one, and there was another tantrum.
This is all totally normal for a three year old, right? I don't want to find out later he's just being a butt. I'm also slightly worried he might have a behavior problem that will cause problems when he goes to school.
