I warn you, my oldest is 17 and I still see tantrums. Teens are bad but pre-teens are the worst. I'd take a 2-4 year old over a preteen any day.

Oh, well.. Going by the definition of throwing themselves on the ground, neither of my kids have had tantrums.. but I think a tantrum is subjective. My son's tantrum includes whining and crying. My daughter's tantrum is putting her body against the wall and crying/yelling.

My older two never had a single tantrum. My younger two had them under 1 years of age

Re: At what age did your LO start having tantrums?

About a month ago my 18 month old started really stomping his feet and pumping his arms when he got upset. Maybe 2 weeks ago he did the throwing himself on the floor kicking, puounding arms, screaming fit. Fun stuff! Thankfully it hasn't happened frequently, but I take it as a preview of what things will be like in the coming months/years.

ds 9 months flat out sprawled on the floor wailing. dd was more typical two years and never so bad. Now at four she's developed the "You're murdering me in some tortuous way." shriek. Fun stuff.
