Put him somewhere that he cannot harm himself or anyone or anything else and let him have it out. Don't feed the fire by trying to calm him down, just make sure he's safe and walk away. When we realizes that it's not getting him the attention he wants he'll come rejoin the family.

Try to find out whats leading up to the tantrum. How is his speech and communication with you? I had a hard time understanding my middle daughter and would have my oldest "translate". She would get really frustrated with me and throw a fit. her speech is much better now (after getting tubes) and doesnt throw fits. Not saying ur son needs tubes, but try to find out whats leading up to his tantrums.
