Ignore him. What you say is law. He doesn't get an opinion. If you give into him now you will have serious issues when he is older.

Until now my son hasn't had tantrums. He's cried but not anything near a tantrum. Only recently did he do the tantrum thing. I gently place him on his bed and tell him he needs his personal space and when he is ready he can join us. I also taught him deep breathing about a year ago and sometimes we just sit next to each other and I talk him through a breathing exercise. Both work for him. If it is because he is frustrated, as in over a toy/puzzle, then I ask him how he wants to solve it and if he needs help to let me know. That usually clears up his frustration and he will usually try to fix it or ask for help. I remind him it is okay to be upset, frustrated, sad, angry....but it is not okay to yell and scream at someone. I have told him he has a right to his feelings but I have the right to not listen to something that hurts my ears so I'm placing you in your personal space where you can safely yell, kick, scream.
