Re: How do I do this?

My DS will sometimes get into these power struggles with me. Lately I have to remind myself to not yell by counting to 10 first. Then....I pick him up and put him on his bed, tell him that he can tell me when he is done, then I shut his door. He finishes his fit pretty soon after that, then he says "MOM! I'm done." I go in and we talk about it for a bit, then he comes out and behaves MUCH better.

Maybe try this. Time outs work well as well, but really only after his fit is pretty much calming down. So....after his time in his room.
