i have a 3.5 year old son an he is basically out of control he will go on tantrum mode for no good reason and i usually will fall for it when he will cry and tell me hes mouth or feet hurt or something but i purposely plan that the next time he does anything like that i will teach him a lesson. because i pick him up from preschool and he was crying because he wants to take a toy home and i said no the next thing i know he was rolling on the floor screaming and ripping pictures of the wall and yeas i was embarrassed and i said to my self that was enough. and he has also start using curse words since stating preschool this September don't know why and how come? so about 1 hour ago he goes into his tantrum mode again just because he wants chips and i said no we will have dinner soon, and boy he hit the floor rolling, screaming, yelling like someone is killing him. i walked away logged on the computer started to do my homework had my older daughter sit and also work on her homework and act like he is not even in the room, and he cries even louder, he scream for help his head hurt, his mouth hurt like usual and all the other things so i can come and pick him up and say it's OK like i usually and hug and kiss him but heeeeellll to the noooooo he did it for exactly 25 minutes until he realize it's not working and he gave up, he walked in the room get a blanket got up the couch laid down and watch TV. boy i feel good lol. i did not give in and now i am all in for it.

For me the age of three was all about complete and utter public humilation. I am surprised they even let me in the library. It gets better.
