SpontaneousNosebleed: First, the situation you describe with your young son is NOT normal. He needs to see a pediatric ENT specialist or a general ENT specialist to ensure he does not have errant blood vessels in the nasal septum and/or nasal cavity.

What causes temper tantrums in tweens?

What causes temper tantrums in tweens?

Unmet wants: Just like toddlers, tweens will have tantrums when they do not get what they want. If tantrums work, you will see a lot of them. Usually you have a few seconds warning. Decide quickly how important the issue is. If you would give in after a tantrum, give in before it occurs. If you will not give in, let the tantrum occur and be strong. Thus, no tantrums will be rewarded.

Is it ok for teen boys to have temper tantrums?

Is it ok for teen boys to have temper tantrums?

NO!: Temper tantrums are normal only in infants. I have seen a teenage boy dive through a plate glass window when reprimanded. Many kick doors and walls and the overwhelming reason for it is dietary mayhem. I have published this in the medica literature and have suggested that school shootings and vandalism are related to high calorie malnutrition, i.e. Junk foods, particularly sweet caffeinated drinks.

My 3 yo just had a massive temper tantrum. He is now asleep but I listened to his hr. It seems like it slows down than speeds up. Worry?

My 3 yo just had a massive temper tantrum. He is now asleep but I listened to his hr. It seems like it slows down than speeds up. Worry?

Variable breathing: It is normal for your 3 year olds heart rate to vary depending on whether he is breathing in or out. This is because when you breath in the heart gets squeezed a little by the lungs and this slows the heart down. Then when you breath out, the heart speeds up a little as the air goes out of the lungs. This is a normal response and often exaggerated in little kids!

I am having a hard time diciplining my 3yr old when she is having a temper-tantrum, not listening or being rude to me & others. I've tried everything?

I am having a hard time diciplining my 3yr old when she is having a temper-tantrum, not listening or being rude to me & others. I've tried everything?

Temper tantrum: Here are some ideas to try. 1) time out 2) remove your child from the scene and discuss why he or she is upset 3) take away favorite toy-- child earns it back with good behavior 4) reward method-- good behavior earns something (not food) 5) teach child ways to deal with stress besides temper tantrum (coloring, writing, favorite book, running outside, etc). Good luck.

How to handle an adult's temper tantrums. Or is it dv?

Not Appropriate: Adults should not be having temper tantrums. Adults are expected to control their temper and problem solve and make good choices. If this person is hitting, berating, or abusing a partner or family member, it is likely to be domestic violence. Get advice from your physician or see a therapist or social worker. It could be a physical problem, also.

I had a meltdown/ temper tantrum infront of my drug counseler, what to do?

Apologize: Apologize, and get counseling for "anger mangagement". Controlling one's temper is an essential process in maintaining "sobriety", so "amends" do not have to be made unnessicarily.

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.

If my daughter still has temper tantrums at 16yo, will she have them forever?

If my daughter still has temper tantrums at 16yo, will she have them forever?

Depends on source: Whether 16 or 60, tantrums after childhood generally represent a boiling over of supressed feelings. Those who do not learn to acknowledge their feelings & share them effectively can be hobbled by sporadic rage. Counseling focused on improving these areas can give anyone a worthwhile skill & a chance to enjoy life without feeling the loss of control that often gives them low self esteeme.

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.'
