Problem: Your little one wakes up with the attitude of a hungry bear. He’s cranky, grumpy, tantrum-prone and just an all-around treat to start off your day. You’ve tried singing to him, letting him wake you up, waking him up, doing things and letting him sleep, reading to him, playing with him. You’ve tried being super happy, being super calm and gently, being ambivalent, nothing works. Your toddler wants to start ruining your day first thing in the morning.
