My son is throwing screaming fits when he doesn't get his way. I have tried walking away from him and putting him in a room with the door closed but he contunies to scream and kick the door. He has now started hitting me and my husband and we both feel like we are losing our minds. I have done the spanking thing but it is not working. Any advice you have would help................Answer Question

We went through this at 3 years old with my Son. DONT SPANK. If you need a breather just walk away for a few minutes. This is what we did, at home we would ignore for a few seconds and if it became worse, we would bend down to his level and give him a big hug and kiss and just hold him and maybe a little tickle after a few minutes to make him laugh. If we are out in public, we remove him immediately by picking him up and holding his hands so he can't hit. Put him in the car as fast as possible locked in the seat and ignore and after a few minutes of driving talk quietly to him. Make him apologize when he calms down every time. My son is now 3 1/2 and the tantrums and bad behavior have greatly diminished. Be consistent & calm. Don't overreact because that is what they want. If you don't react negatively and he still doesn't get what he wants, he'll soon change his behavior too.Remember he is only 3.Give him hugs & kisses.
