Re: [IP] temper tantrums



My son will be 4 in a week.  When he goes through a growing spurt (last
month) his blood sugars are out of whack and he is more likely then to throw
tantrums.  He tends to be more grouchy if he has been high for a period of
time (if I don't catch it to correct).  He is amazing when he is low.
Sometimes he actually has more energy.  I have no idea about that one!  I do
think it is partly just their age and wanting to be more independent.
Nowadays he argues with me about what he is going to wear EVERY morning.  I
thought that was supposed to be a girl/teenager thing.  Can't wait to see
what I'm going to deal with in a few years!!
