My husband and I are at a loss and we desperately need help.
My six and a half year old son throws a tantrum several times a day. All we need to do is to ask him to do something/anything (eg. get changed, we are leaving to go somewhere, clean up etc). It always leads to a tantrum. We have tried putting him into time out when he does it, we have tried a reward system to encourage positive attitude and following instructions. It has lasted about a week and a half and now it has unravelled again. We are dealing with tantrums at least six times a day and it is doing our heads in.
Any suggestions would be very welcome. Has anyone else experienced this (Please let us know that we are not alone!)? What can we do to stop the tantrums?
