Just looking for advice or shared stories! When my son doesn't get what he wants sometimes or when things (like playing cars etc) don't go the way he wants it to he right away gets really upset and angry and will throw things, scream etc. I know that it is normal behavior to have tantrums and get frustrated however sometimes I feel as though he is a little excessive. I first try talking to him nicely about the situation, have encouraged him to let me know how he is feeling and ways to deal with it, to ask for help anytime etc but it doesn't seem to matter most of the time. It gets to the point that I put him in a time out to calm down or up to his room because it's very frustrating on me. I am at a loss of what else I can do or why he is getting so angry. We are not a household that fights and yells at each other either. It's upsetting to see him get so angry so fast over what seem like little things that can be corrected or helped. Anyone with some insight??
