My 3yr od has started having a temper. He had been doing great in time outs & today fought it. Then when he gets upset if lets say I won't color a pic for him or I can't help him right then & there. He tells me he is going to throw something or hit me. & usally does hit or throw. What would you do?

More time-outs for every time he throws or hits. He's just testing you right now (my son goes through phases of this). He'll get the picture that you're the boss again in a couple of days if you stay strong and go back to being a well mannered child. If you give in, however... he'll push and push until he has full control over everything. Stay strong and consistant.
