Whats the best way to deal with ds CONSTANT tantrums when he doesn't get his way??
We just give DD a warning to behave, if she doesn't we tell her to go to her bedroom and we tell her why eg. "If you are not going to eat your dinner properly or if you are going to scream,then you can go to your bedroom." She can scream as she likes in the bedroom. If she hasn't calmed down after a few minutes we go in and calmly tell her she "is being naughty and we are dissapointed and she can come out when she is ready to say sorry and eat(or whatever)like a good girl." She has screamed for 30 mins once but otherwise she is normally fine within a few mins. We don't close the door (although she has done)She goes herself we have never had to take her.
For most part doing this and being firm but calm resolved the tantrums within 3 weeks, although we still get the occasional one. usually the warning is enough. I have only had to tell her to go to her bedroom 4 times since starting this. Good luck I hope this helps. I was so upset as shouting, smacking her hand etc, nothing worked and we stumbled on the bedroom when I sent her to her room as I was scared of really shaking her since I was at my wits end and was trying to come to terms with a miscarriage a few days earlier and a current dose of flu. It was like a mgic switch and I was ashamed of myself for not trying it earlier
