My son just turned one year old on august 14 and has suddenly started to throw rediculous tantrums all the time! I dont know what to do! Everytime I leave the room, or do somthing that is not completely focused on him he screams bloody murder! Its awful he kicks screams and crys for a good 15 min. Even somthing as simple as me putting away an object that he shouldnt have or not reading the book fast or slow enough throws him. Is anyone else having these problems with their one year old? What is the right way to deal with this?

At 9 months old my son screamed for 20 minutes cuz I took my cell phone out of my purse before letting him play w/ my purse.... NOTHING I did would console or distract him until he decided he was done throwing his fit.

I have no advice other than to ride it out. Be understanding, but do not give him the thing that he is throwing a fit over (assuming you took it away for good reason).

That little boy is 3.5 now and still throws some massive fits, but they are much fewer and farther between now since he has the language skills to discuss the problems more.
