  • OH YEAH! The temper tantrums have started, my advise as the mother of the 'king of tantrums' is starting now DO NOT GIVE IN TO MAKE THE SCREAMING STOP! I made that mistake and thought that if I only did it once in a while that would be okay, well come to find out (through Psychology classes) that is what kept them going. Good luck.
