i watched a video on toddlers.( It was hard to sit the whole time as i was keeping up with my own) One of the steps was when a child is throwing a fit to repeat short phrases to calm them down. For exsample want that want that I want that. Other then feeling odd it works. The other thing was feed the meter constenty be reinforceing good behavior to advoid melt downs.

Thankfully we haven't had too many tantrums, nothing bad at all, but he is only 16mths hehehe.
Reinforcing the good behaviour definitely works. Since he was really young we have always been applauding him and making a big deal when he does something right (like putting away his toys), now he does it so he can get applauded the little show off :-D
