  • Don't make him mad.

  • When you see or feel this type of behavior coming on separate him from the situation and place him in a baby type of time out. When he calms down then he can come out. This is normal for this age b/c he doesn't know any other way to show you that he is upset.

  • pick him and remind him he is a big boy, and big boys dont act that way.

  • It's not to early for "feeling talk." First of all, talk about how he is feeling and why. "I know its fun to play with the train toy, and you feel sad that we have to go now." Even if he doesn't quite pick up on what you are saying now, he will pick up on your tone (which if you are understanding how he is feeling, will be one of empathy and kindness). Also, model what you want him to do when he is upset. How would you like him to act when he gets upset? Show him that, both when YOU are upset and when HE is.
