  • My little boy did that but he would scream and my doctor said he will grow out of it... He didn't. Until i started telling him no and pputting him in time out for it. When he got out of time out i praised everything he did until he had another fit. Tell that doctor to kiss it!

  • Try to ignore the fits if you can. Don't give in. 9 months is a little bit too young for punishments, so just try to ignore him or redirect his attention for now. He might grow out of it....

  • pick him up, carry him to his room and tell him he has to stay there until he can behave like a big boy. close the door adn walk away. you may have to put him back in there a few times.

  • ignore it. my 10 month old will do it and i just ignore it. at first i will tell her. go get your toy, or get a cheerio. if she still throws a fit i let her work it out herself. she knows the quicker she calms down the quicker she can come get lovin from mommy
