  • Our son doesn't have tantrums but he does get whiny and a bit 'testy' is what we call it, only when he's tired..

  • my son is more of hardheaded and just ignores me (its that selective hearing he gets from his daddy) then he is real whiney.

  • Oh, let's see.... Me going to the bathroom without him, hearing the word "no" about anything, not being allowed to have his shows on our tv, the one in his room, AND the computer... You name it. Like with yours, anything can set him off, heh. Thankfully, it only lasts for about a minute, but jeez!

  • Let's see..... when I don't let him climb up on the kitchen chairs, when I say "no", when I won't let him walk around with a sippy cup, when I take away the food he is playing with rather than eating, just about anything we disagree on really. I wouldn't even call them tantrums, because they only last for a minute or less.

  • My son doesn't have tantrums but when he doesn't get what he wants he doesn't like it. But what do you expect from a 3yr old that has a truck friver for a dad & is spoiled whenever he gets to see him which is hardly every weekend. He been gone 2 weeks. :(

  • If we say no, he freaks out. LOL
