My 2.5yr old son had his worst tantrum a couple of months ago when I was visiting my sister.
My nephew is 11 months younger than my son and my sister and I have VERY different parenting styles.
My son threw the hugest fit(and I don't blame him really) after he got put in a time out for hitting his cousin.
My husband and I don't agree with the whole "kids will be kids" b.s. that my sister and her partner believe in. To us that's just lazy parenting.
My nephew was getting away with irritating my son and poking at him and smacking at him so when my son got punished for finally smacking him back, he lost it.
I had to take him to a different part of the house because he was screaming so loud.
He was frustrated because he was getting into trouble for the same thing that his cousin was getting away with.
Like I said, I don't blame him for getting so upset but I'm also not going to just let it slide when he hits someone else.

My 18 month old is nuts! lol She will get soooo mad at you if you take something from her. I always say "Give that to mommy please" or "Can mom have that?" and if she doesn't i take it and say "thank you" Anyways one day she took a pen off the table and started to write all over herself with it. So i asked her for it and she said no. So i asked again she said no again. So i went to take and she fought me lol Sooo when i took it from her finally she threw herself on the floor and started to scream. I told her she was ok and to get up everything was fine. I tried to give her something else to play with and she ran to the door banging on it screaming! And she just kept screaming. I finally just left the room. She actually followed me! Just to scream. Anyways that lasted forever and when i laughed it made it worse. But she never throws fits so it was pretty bad for me to deal with lol

My son this morning, almost 21 months old threw himself on the floor screaming and kicking because I wouldn't add more milk in his cereal. Mind you, he refused already to eat it over and over and I already DID add more milk and More cereal by his request once. I took his bowl and said ALL DONE and threw it away and went to get ready and he followed me to 3 rooms and in each room threw himself on the floor again in upset.

My 2 year old pitched a tantrum today because she doesn't have a penis and she wants one. We visited a 2 year old who was potty training, and he wasn't wearing pants when we got there. Try reasoning with a kid about that.
