Q:

hello girls,

i am a bit tensed today. i am having my exams next week. So lot of time is going in front of books or laptop or mobile. My husband is taking care of Anay while i study.

But he doesn't seem to be happy about it. He is throwing my books n mobile. Even if he is playing with his friends n father still he is coming and snatching things from my hand. Otherwise also he has become too cranky and kind of angry.

While I play with him i should not touch my mobile or book evwn for a second. He is not feeding, he is not eating n not even crying. He just behaving weirdly.

Its not thw first timw i am giving exam and he saw me studying. But this timw he is behaving strange.

how to handle this?  I am really worried..

Sweety ...all the very best for your exams. Im just thinking out loud and want to help the best i can. 1. can you go out to study? ..out of site out of mind ...2. study when both are out at the park?....3. try getting baby to sleep early so u can study in piece

I guess Ur kiddo need Ur undivided attention.. when u r playing with him make sure u r completely with him.. study when he is sleeping.. keep him around you when are not studying for exams and doing some other work so he feel closer to you..  hope this helps..  all the best for your exams..
how old is he ???

best of luck for ur exams. its his way of showcasiing his resentment. since u r not able to spend time as much as u would have earlier. i would suggest to spend more time. like rather than spending 3 times,  increase the number of times u spend with him. may be 10 minutes each time ?

hi shruti all the very best for ur exams! when do they start? anay is used to u being there all the time naa thats why he's throwing a tantrum for attention and like harneet explained, showing resentment. why dont u sit him down whn he is in a good mood and explain that u need to study and that he too can study and write while u are studying? he was so understanding whn u bfed ur friend's baby. he will understand this as well. all the other moms hv given u excellent advice. tc

All the best for your exams shruti...

all the best with your exams Shruti. I guess he's just throwing a tantrum like other moms have suggested . Perhaps it is best he wean off of you a little as well ? just so you can get time , not to worry and study a little. maybe you could also tell him that you're both working now, so you give him an assignment to work on with his dad and you study while he does something. make it look like you're both working on individual projects but together ?

all the best dear.... one thing is you won't be able to study with anay disturbing you, and also he is old enough to know when you are not paying attention to him... i second priya on you going out of the house to study, he will adjust with your hubby then... and when with him, give him undivided attention...

Priya Sood Sheeba Vijesh I tried going out for study last week..but he started crying like hell...I literally came back within 5 minutes
last month also I gave one exam...whole day I wasn't home...they had a great time...but now it's completely opposite he is not leaving me even for a second...I really don't know what happened in a month...

Richa Chowdhary di, he is 19 months old... usually I study when he is sleeping only but as it's in next week so I thought I need extra time...but I think I'll have to stick to my previous schedule...

Harneet Khurana yeah that time management can be done...

asha chaudhry Sumira Bhatia so co-working u r suggesting...ok..let me try these things...I hope he get settled soon with this as I have lot of things to do

asha chaudhry di.... seriously.. it's been so long for that thing...u still remember that tiny detail from my post...thank u so much...
actually that's wat I was worried about the most...he is not like this..he understands very well when I try to explain but this behavior was a shock for me...

Sonam patel thanks dear...thank everyone

Shruti Giri may b u can give him some paper and crayons and make him do some scribbling.. while you study.. that way he can be with you.. seeing you in books he.might as well same

Richa Chowdhary yes I will try this di.... actually now we are playing the blame game.... everyone thinks I have not given him alone time.... I didn't do it intentionally to spoil him for God sake....3 of us live together...we are bound to face each other 24/7 ...there is no one else to take care even for an hour...with whom should I leave him to get used to....
I think I will just have to tell him and make him understand that.... will try these things for sure...thanks

Shruti Giri I know challenges staying in nuclear family.. I too quit job after my son...hugs to u.. this too shall pass..

Richa Chowdhary thanks... hopefully shall pass...

Richa Chowdhary thanks... hopefully shall pass...

Richa Chowdhary thanks... hopefully shall pass...

Richa Chowdhary thanks... hopefully shall pass...

Shruti Giri, please excuse the ignorant question but what are you preparing for?

all the best for your exam and  just keep calm i think amay is 1 yr old baby so he must be naughty that.
so dnt think much over it just take time to do ur preparations as priya said.

All the best for ur exam..

All the best for youright exam
