Since this strange change in my son, I feel like I spend most of my time with him correcting or disciplining him. It drives me crazy! Not because his behavior is odious and makes me mad, though sometimes it does, it's because I love my child so much I hate being upset with him. I want him to be compliant and grateful and pleasant all the time and instead he's being such a two year old!
