HELP with 4 year-old MAJOR temper tantrums??

My almost 4 year old has recently begun throwing immensely huge temper tantrums! I'm not sure if he's regressing due to his 8 month old brother?? His newest reason for fir throwing is my refusal to help him go to the bathroom which he's been potty trained for the last year and a half?? HELP??

He's probably just seeking a little extra attention from you because he now has to share you. I think it's perfectly normal and a little patience on your part will go a long way. Try spending some special one on one time with your 4 year old, just the two of you. Make it a regular thing. It will show him that he's still just as important to you as ever. Also, I would be careful about refusing to help him in the potty, even though he's trained. I think he's maybe using that to get your attention and that if you refuse, he could regress in his training a little. Just my opinion though. Good luck :)
