    Hi, I can quite understand what you are going through. Take a deep breath. You are not alone in this parenting journey. Your child is now at the phase of what we call The Terrible Twos. Children this age have just started to explore this new world that they have been brought into. Throwing a tantrum when hearing a NO is quite normal for them. But, as parents we can only learn to minimize the number of times our child throws a tantrum rather than aiming to completely stop the behaviour. Also, saying NO to your child helps them to learn about boundaries and limits, this in turn will help your child feel safe and secure. But, how you say NO to your child makes a great difference. Hope this helps!

    Heres a link that can help you learn effective ways to Say No to your Child.

    @Geetha M I am unable to copy the link you've sent. Can u paste that separately.

    When my child happens to hear No, everything turns up side down. He doesn't give up and we succumb to his behavior. We end up giving what he is asking.

    @Geetha M Is it just recently that your son has started to behave this way? And, how do you react when he starts whining, running around the house or beating?

    @Geetha M As he is growing, this seems to be growing with him too.

    @Geetha M If we tell him to stop it becomes even worse. So we kind of give some alternate, but most of the time it doesn't work either. Finally we just accept whatever he is asking for.

    @Geetha M Saying NO is difficult. And, even more so to a child who doesn't want to hear NO at all. You want to make your child happy. I know, Its a lot more simple and easy, at least in the moment, to cave in to what he wants. Its also easier to shout. However, given the long-term negative effects, it is imperative that you spend time learning to communicate calmly and effectively.

    Can you share with me a few example scenarios that your child starts acting up for?
    What are the things that he starts crying for?

    @subha How old she is?

    subha Nov 28 2017

    @subha 3 and half yrs

    @subha Even my kid used to get cold frequently.Till a certain age, it will be like that only. After 4 yrs or so, kid will improve immunity then they wil be fine.
    I use eucalyptus oil, warm coconut oil mixed with camphor, tulasi leaves etc, all home remedies.
    If it doesnt reduce then i wil go for medication

    Hi, it's the same scenario for me too! My 2.5 yr old son gets out of control when I say 'NO'. Though there is less I can do, I try to take him down for a walk, or give him his favorite food or show him his favorite rhymes or toys to play.
    Each one works once, next day I think of a new thing! It all depends on what HIS favorite stuff is, ranging from food to toys or games.
    Hope this helps!
