My Son is 17 Months,He Is such as well behaved boy but about 2 weeks-4 weeks ago He started having really bad strops. all ive got to say to him is ''no'' or ''harley'' and he'll through himself on the floor and start kicking and hitting the floor and then he'll start head butting the floor,and he'll scream the place down. then he'll start laughing.if i say no again he'll try and kiss me thinking it going to be better. but when i take him out,hes gotta be in his pram because otherwise he'll start throwing strops in town/supermarkets anywhere i go.
please can someone give me an idea how to stop it.
thanks in advance x

my son is a really bad tanty thrower (minus the head banging hes all about the feet)... I decided that he gets three warnings... ! stop that (or no you cant have that ect)... by the thrid time he gets time out approprite for his age 2min approx.... we make him stand in one corner (not there room otherwise they associate it with naughtyness)... then I call him over after hes calmed down and tell him why he cant do that and kiss him(wither he wants one or not haha)... for tantrum at shops  let him scream his lungs out dont care otherwise they just keep doing it....(learnt that one fast) Its hard when people look at you especially older generations like you have the devil child ( I always say to my self well in there times they just beat them with a rod... a little screaming wont hurt that much.....hope any of that was a help
