Hey everyone... My almost 3 year old boy has been quite cranky and irritable these days.. Have been noticing this for around a month and his grandparents too tell me of the same behaviour while I'm away at office..

I attribute it to some kind of crossroads between being a baby and growing up.. as per whatever I have read recently.. The child is not too sure how to behave as he is still a baby but not really one at the same time..

Is there any tried and tested method I can use while he's in the middle of a temper tantrum to try and diffuse his anger and lighten up the moment ???

How to – Keep Calm And Tame Your Toddler’s Tantrums

Hey Shirin mine is also 3 years monster and very short tempered....he gets irritate quickly the only tried n tested formula to calm down his tantrum is to hug him tightly and divert his mind it always work...:)

Thanks for the links.. Read through them.. I'm more worried because of all his hitting and kicking.. He suddenly takes a truck or bat and goes to the maid and hits her hard repeatedly and of course she does not retaliate because she feels we will reprimand her although I have now told her if he is coming toward her with something to hold his hand and call me.. He has made her eye swell up once and her lip bleed.. we give him and hard whack when he does that.. and he cries 'without' tears for a good 15 mins and then all is forgotten.. Refuses to say sorry to her or to any other family member

oh my, that's some tantrums! maybe you can buy him some books which show good behaviour, and explain that is how nice children behave. also give non materialistic rewards such as golden stars in a book or wall to appreciate good behaviour and do not forget to show it in front of him to guests.... also keep tab on what he is watching on screen, if some cartoon propagates such behaviours. let the maid also bond with him better so that he sees her as part of the family... do not beat him, as he may see this as a way of attracting attention, even if its negative....
