I have two boys, one nine and the other three and a half so I have a little experience with tantrums. I too tried just about everything to get them to stop and basically just stumbled on something by accident that seems to be working (thank God!). Whenever my little guy, ( yeah he occasionally still has them) goes into one of these horrid tantrums, I simply drop to my knees to where we are eye to eye and start talking to him in a calm, and I mean very calm tone. I start to talk about how nice a walk would be about now, how if he weren't so upset we could be doing something so fun right now. Don't ask me why or how, but for my son it does work. Talk about whatever you know the kid likes, puppies or kitties whatever! It only works if you follow through with whatever, when I talk about taking a walk , we do go for that walk. I hope this helps you. Good luck.
