Thus, no tantrums will be rewarded. ...Read more
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.

Then when you breathe 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! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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?
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. ...Read more

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
