I have a 3 soon to be 4 year old who is constantly throwing temper tantrums all day every day. If you say the word "no" to him, he has a complete meltdown. If he has to transition to an activity he doesn't want to do, he has a complete meltdown. When we try to punish him by putting him in timeout, he absolutely refuses to sit there unless we spank him. He will scream at us if he doesnt like what we have to say, tell us he doesnt love us, and stomp and run away.
He is capable of being just as sweet as he is mean......when he is getting his way, or having a good day (few and far between) he is the most loving child you've ever met. He is also capable of doing his work at school (if he wants to) He is a very smart child, but if he doesn't want to do something he makes it well known. His teachers have to physically restrain him to put him in time out. If possible, he hits, bites, and kicks them to try to get away.

I would light a fire under that boys butt!! Sounds like he is confuse on who is in charge, not only at home but also at school. The teachers by law have to do the whole time out thing but as a parent we have to do what it takes! Let him know who is in charge and that if he goes against it there will be consiquinces! He may be little but if you don't teach him now just wait until he turns 16! Good luck and put your foot down!
