@Sarada Dudheria It could be a passing phase or might need intervention.. There are articles in this website about children's behavior.. try to go through all those articles and try to read books related to this problem. Setting expectations, encouraging good behavior and all sound easy but when you are facing such tantrums, it must be difficult for you. Have patience and to change his overall nature, try to adopt different ideas. Don't know if it will make sense but when we were kids, in our times, we were less exposed to kids' Tv serials, there were no phones or video games. Some of these Children's programs are so noisy and the games are so exciting that they affect children's mood. Try to avoid these. They also don't teach anything much and don't add value to a child's growth. We were also told lot of stories by grandmas and other elders which shaped our thinking process and behavior to some extent. When he is calm, try to narrate stories from our mythology or stories that have excellent morals. Use bed time or feeding time to engage with him and tell him a couple of stories about Ram,Shravan kumar and many other characters that have set a standard. Avoid negative environment and encourage him to make good friends. He also needs good role models. If he admires somebody(a star or any favorite person), whenever he is about to throw a tantrum, make sure you tell him that that's now how that person would react in a situation like this. Sometimes you need to discuss serious issues like this with a doctor in case you are not able to handle him at all. They might help you with counselling and help him develop empathy and sympathy for others. Mother is the best Counselor to a child they say. Have confidence in yourself. Ultimately you are the closest person to the child and have a lot of influence on him. Hope things get better and he becomes a role model to others. Good luck.
