Temper Tantrums...phase?

Please read all of this...my son who is 3 has been acting really well he listens talks to me when he is upset...but when he does do something wrong and I tell him NO sternly and make him sit in the corner he cries and cries...i will make him sit there until he stops crying and sits there respectively but my question is anyone else have this problem? and what do you do to change it? Is it okay to skip time outs?If the problem is resolved better by talking it out and they dont do it again? Also anything besides time outs any of you have tried...? I have taken away toys and taken away cartoons...? Desperate I do not want my son acting this way towards a teacher ect..

    Not sure talking it out is the best. I know I can only say short sentences to my three year old until I lose his attention, but your three year old might be different. I don't see anything wrong with how you are dealing with his behavior, especially if it is working, and from what you said it is working, right?

    yea it works its just that he has meltdowns from SPD and its hard because sometimes he gets so upset he upset me he forgets why he is in time out and when i talk to him sometimes it helps better...i just wanna make sure im not giving in to him u know

    How would you be giving in to him if you have given him consequences for his bad behavior? From what you said, I don't think you are giving in to him. I think you are being a good mom. :)

      3 is tough w taking things away. They don't Always get it. They need immediate and swift discipline. Him crying is their way to get it to stop and show emotion for their regret.

      I think u should say no sternly. Remind him what he did wrong and give him 3 minutes. Let him cry. Remind him during with a calm voice that you love him but what he did was wrong and he has to stay there.

      Pull him out after 3 minutes even if still crying. Hug him, remind him why he was punished and move on.

      Rinse and repeat until they're 21
