Mommy temper tantrum; I am actually a grandma who is trying to find answers for my son and daughter in law. Their son, my grandson is 4 1/2. He is not nice to his mom, throws temper tantrums, screams, says things like he is going to beat her up when he grows up. These outbursts come on with the smallest of issues-like "go brush your teeth", "go pick up your toys", "turn off the tv". These outburst seemed directed at mommy only. On the few times dad has witnessed them he has backed mom and disciplined him. Mom is driving herself crazy worrying about what to do. I have had talks with him and he seems to understand what is said but the talks don't last long. Does anyone out there have any words of wisdom?
