Q: My 3-year-old has been throwing tantrums on a daily basis. The whole thing usually begins with him screaming for something (e.g., a truck). When I give it to him, he screams that he doesn’t want it. If I take it from him, he screams that he wants it again. We go back and forth until I’m so fed up that as soon as he says he doesn’t want something, I refuse to offer it again. This causes him to have an even bigger meltdown.
