Can I put my 2 year old in time out when he throws a tantrum? Is this useful?

Do It !!!!: A time out works very well if done properly. Explain to your child what the behavior leading to the time out with a firm no. Use a safe place such as a playpen if the child can't climb out.The clock starts when the child has settled down. Then a good 15 mins or so. The 1 minute per year of age is not based upon any research that i know of and does not work well. ...Read more

12 years old acts like a 2 year old throws tantrums almost all the time has not got any friends?

Not good!: This is more like the behavior of a 2 year old, as you are probably already aware. A full physical examination and psychological assessment would be appropriate as a starting place to explore the causes of the behavioral issues you are experiencing. Talking with his teachers and engaging the school guidance counselor may also be of tremendous benefit. Best wishes! ...Read more

Ignoring: The best method is to ignore the child. Make sure she is in a safe place. She needs to get LESS attention from you during a tantrum, not MORE attention! The Storm will pass. Try starting your bedtime routine a bit earlier, and keep the same routine each night. Warm bath, quiet reading time, and no TV. ...Read more

My 2 year old had the flu he can take the medicine every time I give it to him he throw out all the medicine in I don't know what to do?

Stop meds: The main treatment for flu is proper rest and nutrition while they recover. The meds offer little, especially if they throw it up every time. They give you something to do, but I'd avoid the battle & clean ups. ...Read more

Difficult dx: I am not an everyday expert in adhd. However, i don't think you can accurately diagnose adhd in a 2 yo. I have advice to decrease the likelihood of developing adhd. Turn off the tvs, computers, video games. Never allow your son to spend more than an hour a day in a room with any of those devices. Set aside time to read to him every day. Spend time outside with him every day. Have conversations. ...Read more

My 2 year old son gets very angry when he doesn't get his way. He yells throws things and sometimes he talks to himself. Should i be conconcerned?

Temper tantrums: If your child has otherwise developed normally, temper tantrums are a very immature way toddlers asserts their independence and will. It will pass. The trick is not engaging in an argument with a 2 year old, changing his activity and distracting him work. They are also pushing limits. Be consistent so he eventually knows that when you say "no" it does not mean maybe. Firm loving limit setting. ...Read more

What might cause a two year old child to throw up and run a temperature 6 hours after lunch?

What might cause a two year old child to throw up and run a temperature 6 hours after lunch?

Many, many things: It could be something he ate. It could be a virus he caught from someone. It could be some other kind of infection that happens to be causing fever and vomiting. The bottom line in a child with fever and vomiting is that he need to stay hydrated. Give very small sips of liquid (1-2 teaspoons) frequently (every 5-10 minutes). This way, even if he vomits, some of that liquid will be absorbed. ...Read more

4 yr old who throws major temper tantrums has multiple meltdowns everyday. Can get physical with you at times. What can/should be done? Desperate!

Talk to your doctor: First, talk with your child's doctor. She may recommend a child therapist or behavior counselor. Give your child choices where you can, but not where you can't. You can say "it's time for bed. Do you want to read a book or sing a song before you go to sleep?" don't say "do you want to go to bed"! avoid unnecessary power struggles and choose your battles. Be consistent with important rules, though. ...Read more

Proper dx/ shot: Kids whose illness or behavior means a predictable failure with oral meds can be treated for strep with a single shot of penicillin.A confirmatory test should always precede treatment.

Could it be healthy for a 13 year old to throw an explosive temper tantrum?

Nope: Tantrums are normal for two year olds. This is a warning sign of a deeper psychological problem that needs to be immediately investigated. If you have guns in the house remove them. Certainly sit down with him and give him the chance to openly discuss his feelings. Then get him in for his appointment asap. ...Read more

Terrible toddler: Assuming he's normal, his tantrums are not too unusual at this age. If you react when he throws one, you will reinforce it as acceptable behavior. The toddler is trying to sort out how to react to frustration or needs. Let him just wear out, walk away from it, being sure he is safe. Don't try to reason with him, because at that age it will be interpreted as acceptance of behavior. ...Read more
