My Baby Is SO Easily Frustrated!
Emmett goes from zero to EXTREMELY angry faster than a German-engineered racecar. And it doesn't take much to set him off!
The latest source of his frustration is his —a birthday gift—which heloooves.
The problem stems from the fact that there's not much room for walker-ing in our apartment. When Emmett wants to play with his walker, he has a very limited space in which to do so.
So he pushes it from the living room toward the kitchen. There's a half-inch step up between the two, so if he doesn't have enough momentum, he hits the ledge, falls onto his butt, and starts crying. Sometimes he gets two of the wheels over the ledge, but the other two get stuck—falling and crying ensue. And sometimes he makes it all the way to the end of the kitchen, bounces off the microwave, and (you guessed it!) falls and cries.
If we turn the wagon around for him, he'll get up again and push it into the living room, happy again. But in 45 seconds, when he hits the coffee table, falls, and cries, we're back at Square One.
Like I said, Emmett loves his walker, but he gets so insanely frustrated by it. He also gets frustrated when his dad leaves for work, when we make him sit (not stand) in the bathtub, or when he can't get to a toy that's a little bit out of reach. And he displays his frustration by crying and screaming at a level that's entirely disproportionate with the direness of the situation.
My instinct is to "fix" whatever's upsetting him (turn the walker around, hand him the toy) but part of me feels like I should let him freak out and figure things out for himself.
