    sorry, fogot to say that kids don't miraculously stop having tantrums (their way to deal with anger, frustration, sadness, etc) when they have their 3rd, 4th or 5th birthday. it is a gradual learning of how to deal with these emotions that eventually leads them to better ways of handling them. by offering a "non-punishment" time out/quiet time, you are helping that along.

    Hate to have to revive this thread -- how long does it take to "get better"?
    My son have been having tantrum almost everyday after school since school started in Sept. (The last and first time he had tantrums like this was in June when he went back to school after home sick for a week) He had mostly accepted the driving thing, but he find other things to be upset with. The last two days, he cried over wanting a bottle for nap (he gets a bottle at night). I offered milk in cup, chocolate milk, etc, but NO he only wants bottle. He went on and on and scream for an hour. We didn't give him attention, left him in his room (sometimes have to drag him back to his room). after he calmed down, I explained things to him and he's completely ok as if nothing happened.
    How long does it take to get better? weeks? months?
    It's really stressful to deal with this every day. Also started to wonder if he doesn't like school, or somehow at school the crying ones get all the attention and he is copying? He is in nursery and the school is very laid back, mostly just playing. His teachers said he tends to play by himself at school. Is the school not stimulating enough? Again, I'm just ranting and maybe overthinking it.....

    Hiya not sure if this is applicable to you, but I notice that when my daughter doesn't have enough sleep or is tired, she tends to 'act up' and be less obedient. Often times it coincides with after school hours when she is due her nap .....

    School is only 9-12. And even no school days he nap at 1:30pm. He does get up early though, 6-7am. If it is tired, I can't make not tired so what can I do? Can't put him to nap right after school at 12:15 without lunch. And I wish he can sleep in later.....
    Thanks for "listening"!
