Depends on what the tantrum is about. If it is about clothes, he will take everything off!

If it is about going to bed, then it is just a big fuss with him trying to get out of the bedroom and back to whatever he was wanting to do. I usually sit by the door and warn him over and over that if he opens the door then he will get a spanking. The same thing goes for treats. If he opens the freezer or pulls a chair up to get a cookie out I have to sit there and listen to him fuss and watch his sneaky butt and threaten him with whatever punishment fits the crime at that moment. He is FINALLY starting to grow out of this crap.

Well we rarely have to deal with tantrums with Haleigh She has an occasional one but I don't even remember when the last one was. Even though it was not funny I was almost because it is the exact reaction I used to have. Stomp away, stomp up the stairs and slam the door. Then if you don't think you really slammed it hard enough, open it and slam it again and repeat until your satified. Of course I would never laugh where she could see me and Dh didn't find it nearly as amusing as I did.

Ciara is going to be a whole different story

It really depends on how he's feeling and what the an tantrum is about. I'd say his most comment reactions are to cleanch his fists, get a mad look on his face and just look at me or walk away or the alternative of screaming/crying at the top of his lungs.

Brendan gets this nasty look on his face and tells me straight up he's mad, folds his arms too and stomps the feet and if I ignore him he yells really loud saying " mommy, I"m talking to you", lol.
