I am 22 years old a fulltime student and have a part-time job. My son and I live with my parents. My mother watches him and lets him completely control her, his temper tantrums have gotten worse and my mother discredits my input. She tries to make excuses for his actions instead of trying to stop them. I've witnessed them getting frustrated and yelling then picking him (which they don't see is making a bad situation worse) and try to act like I'm too young and dumb to know how to deal with it. PLEASE HELP!!! How'd you all deal with tantrums? I've consistently read to remain calm and put him by himself until he is calmed down. When alone I've done this and it eventually works but he gets around his grandparents and has complete control.
