  • Aww..HELL NO!!!!! He got a pop on the leg or sent to bed for a nap. Why would I give in and make screaming and fit throwing a habit?

  • NEVER. I simply tell him to be careful not to hurt himself, and that making faces like that will cause cancer... I only have a problem with my middle child, and that is because his father bribes him for his affection. It's really sad.

  • no. I do try to listen to what has caused it. Normally it is too much sugar

  • no, she goes on a blanket area in livingroom
    kind of time out
    do not call it that yet
    she has delays and tantrums are a big issue
    too far gone when having tantrum to get time out idea
    but that is what it is

  • My kids didn't have tantrums. They didn't work so why bother. My grandson tried a couple of times and when no one paid attention he gave up.

  • No... If we are in public He gets talked to, or taken to the bathroom, if we are at home I just walk away or send him to his room to cool down. He knows they aren't allowed in this house.
