We have NEVER tolerated tantrums and we aren't now. I just want to quit. He is so strong willed and, regardless of how we discipline him, he just freaks out more as a result of the discipline. I just want to quit. I am so completely overwhelmed and have no idea what to do with him anymore.
(We use time outs and revoke privileges/take items). Tonight, as a result of an absolute tantrum over losing a game, I took a dog he sleeps with most nights (no, it's not his security item and he does NOT need it to sleep...he just really likes it) and he didn't get a cookie. Now he's upstairs absolutely losing his marbles.
He is 7 and I am done.
(Not really, I just need to vent...I am so frustrated with this. Yes, his dad, my husband, is involved and is dealing with him right now.)
