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.

Those who do not learn to acknowledge their feelings & share them effectively can be hobbled by sporadic rage.

Why do bodybuilders have temper tantrums when people say they do not like their look?

Why do bodybuilders have temper tantrums when people say they do not like their  look?

Think about it: These people work very hard to look special. Most of them are not abusing steroids, but have a healthy, often lonely lifestyle focused on building strength. Not everyone thinks massive musculature looks nice (some might even be jealous). But do you generally put down other people's achievements? Do you tell other athletes 'It's not worth it?' Instead, why not just say 'You must work hard.' ...Read more

Can my 7 month old be having temper tantrums?When he wants something he doesn't just get fussy anymore. He just screams loudly and suddenly.

Can my 7 month old be having temper tantrums?When he wants something he doesn't just get fussy anymore. He just screams loudly and suddenly.

I agree that his : pediatrician needs to see him & a video of an episode. Learned behaviors typically start at 6 months, so he can have learned that his shriek gets instant attention, but you can't ignore it till you know he's ok. If ok, ignore it consistently till he gives it up. Intermittently reinforcing it makes it last longer. Attend to him while he's happy. with phrases like, " Up? You want up?" & a smile. ...Read more
