Temper tantrums

My 1 1/2 year old does this loud scream and throws himself down and time out doesnt seem to work how do I get him to stop doing this? He does it all the time now and it's very stressful listening to that all day long when he doesn't get his way

Sometimes tantrums can just be a phase. When my daughter first started throwing tantrums, I did not put her in time outs; I just left the room while she finished. She was no longer getting my attention in any way and it seemed to help them become less frequent. When she was older, I would put her in a small time out. Now, when she has a tantrum she goes to time out and finishes it quickly. I am not sure this helps you right this minute, but I think if you can hold out and not give in, it will lessen. Hang in there!
