Add your advice here…
Message length 300 characters recommended

By 8 years old a neurotypical child should know not to throw tantrums and be disrespectful. When this behavior happens you need to react calmly but with authority. Quickly explain that the behavior is not acceptable, why it isn't acceptable and then issue a consequence every time it happens so that the child knows what to expect if they behave this way. Don't yell, scream or whine back at them because this gives them attention for the behavior.
