hey i was reading your message and i know what you are talking about i have a eight year old , he begin tantrums when he doesn't get his way he begins to lash out , slamming doors, and screams top of his lungs, at first i try to ignore it cause he wants my attention when i doesnt work i explain to him that his behavior is not acceptable then i tell him he is being punished by me taking something that he adores for three days and if his behavior does not change i add another day . most the time that works.
