Ways to control my bad temper please? No anger management available or doctors!! Just tell me what to do please

1,2,3,4..I'm kidding: It's not easy, but it's possible. Realize that their misdeeds don't belong on your bill. Preserving your life and whatever quality you can is what matters.

Try to be away from those that provoke you. Love a pet - they understand. Hope it helps ...Read more

My queston is, is there any chance that he could be having a seizure rather than an tantrum my son wakes up in the middle of the night. But its not every night. But when he does he has a very bad temper. It is like something is posessing him. It is teri

Most : Most likely he is suffering from night terrors. It is completely unrelated to the horner's syndrome. A night terror is a type of sleep disorder called a parasomnia that predominantly affects children between the ages of 3 and 12. They typically occur during the first few hours of sleep during state 3 or 4 non-rem sleep. They should not be confused with nightmares which are bad dreams. Usually the child will “bolt upright” with their eyes wide open and the look of fear or panic on their face. This is usually accompanied by screaming, sweating, rapid heart rate. The child is not awake during these spells, is often confused and inconsolable during the spell and is amnestic to it in the morning. On average they can occur one time per week. More frequent events should warrant evaluation. ...Read more
