Our expert says:
Well, you've discovered that punishment is a really lousy and ineffective way to stop a child crying. Distraction uually works reasonably well. Stop trying to stop him. Simply concentrate on the rest of the morniong's routimns, and tell him pleasantly that you're sorry if he feels unhappy, but when he stops crying, you'll be getting his breakfast ready, and you look forward to seeing him then.
