My son is 4.5 and, like most stages in his developement, is very intense in his whining and crying right now. Its driving me batty. Time outs and all the "normal" things don't seem to be working. Its getting so its impeding alot of fun we should be having (which is not abnormal for his stages--- as I said, he does everything very intensly) I'm wondering if anyone has any creative ideas that helped thier child through this lovely stage.

4.5..hmmm you better wait until he's 5 and deal then.....IGNORE is a good one and letting him know that he needs to use his big boy voice and tell mommy what he wants. they all do this ..ALL OF THEM...its like you said a stage. Let him know you understand hes upset and that you'll be ready to listen when he's done. Seriously just because he's 4 doesn't mean they cant comprehend that, i say it to my son all the time and he's noticed that mama will not respond to tantrums.
