  • The book Love & Limits may teach you how to avoid the tantrums. It is by Elizabeth Crary. She has a website called Star Parenting. Here is a parenting chart you can print and put on the fridge.

    When your son is throwing tantrums you can hold him so he doesn't hurt himself or anything else.

  • isolate him when he is throwing the tantrum. He does it for a reaction, if you walk away from it, it will loose all of it's power.
