Melt down starts he yells "But I want to go to Hockey" he says this over and over and over. Even though I am explaining to him at eye level looking at him saying " Yes you are going to Hockey" "I just need you to lay down for a bit,you have two games today and you are already tired. It all goes down hill. It lasted for 6 hours of him crying he ended up missing Hockey. This happens at least 2-3 times a week. help!Answer Question

I think taking away hockey might be the best idea. Throwing a crying tantrum isn't that abnormal. Throwing things down the stairs and being destructive isn't normal. I would tell him one more tantrum like that and no more hockey. And it wouldn't be just a threat, it would be a promise.

first thingi would do is change his diet
^ sorry, i can not make it a clicky since changing to chrome
my daughter is on this elimination diet. when she accidently has some of these chemicals in US food, she is "nuts"
try for a month with no slip ups, see if this helps
will not fix everything that is bad behavoir...but can make a HUGE difference for some kids, it did for mine

Don't tell him that you are going to do this after that. Say go lay down & rest. If he asks when Hockey is then just say "they open later, no one is there now they are closed." Another example: he wants to watch TV & not eat dinner. Say "eat now because the TV show you want to watch is not on until later". Don't give options.
