Does your school age child have temper tantrums?

If your child is between the ages of 5-10 and has frequent emotional outbursts/ tantrums .... I want to know if you also used the cry it out method to "sleep train" your child. There is growing evidence that infants allowed to cry it out suffer from impaired emotional development.

Hmm...I think you need to look at your research better. You are trying to link two things together that are unrelated. In order to say one causes the other you have to take out all other variables, which is impossible to do. How a child is raised, how consistent parents are on discipline, how structure and routine is there or not there, how dysfunctional family life is, did the child come from a dysfunctional life before living in the current home are all factors that can affect your results. You can't just link one thing to another just because you disagree.
