Dom, my boy also the same. Been throwing tantrums for the past few months. I think he trying to get attention from us. Whenever he throw tantrums i use to shout or beat him now which doesn't work on him so now i try another soft method is to look into his eyes and talk to him that what he did is wrong, sometimes it works only. Got to keep telling and reminding him. Nowadays kids not afraid of beating, when my son did something wrong then his dad beat him very hard, he still can laugh.. alamak... how to teach them????
