Can you give some examples, my DD gets frustrated Crete easily and from what I feel the tantrums are growing as she is aging. On top of that DH thinks he can be stern , scold and can get the behavior better! As per him the kid is just being stubborn and he is trying to nip it in the bud ( really!)

I would really love some examples of exactly what you are doing!  We feel like hanging ourselves with the end of our rope!

SO GLAD it worked for you. But sad to say postive reinforcement didnt work for us. There was NO REWARD great enough. There was NO currency great enough to get my son to do what we wanted every time with out issue. I know some kids respond to it-- and I am SOOO glad yours did...

For those that find there is no currency great enough, no postive reward tht works.. no sticker chart, no star chart, no penny jar... etc... I suggest you r ead the expolsive child- by ross greene- I found it super helpful.. no scolding, no pubnishments.. worked like a charm to instill happy respectful household.
most of his info is free at http://www.livesinthebalance.org/... on the left go to LEARN- Why solve problems collaboratively. Watch all 5-6 short videos... just mind blowing-- life changing for us!!!!
We have been doing this for a year.. my son is doing SUPER. maybe 3 short 5minute "issues" not even trantrums.. easily resolved, Peace.

Yes....We also did try scolding in the beginning but I realized it wasn't working, it was causing fear in him and he was afraid to fail.I know they used positive reinforcement at school.So I decided to give it a try at home.Some examples I do is every time he does something right I congradulate him or give him some medal or a reward.When he doesn't or he is being mean I remind him that's not right or I tell him how he can hurt someones feelings.His good behavior is all him.Its not forced.
