My 3 yo averages about 10 mins per tantrum, mostly when he can't get something he wants. He has at least one every other day, getting to be less frequent as he gets into his mid 3's, although I'm not gonna count on that trend continuing. Some days he has many. He usually says: go away, don't talk to me, i want _ _ _, and sometimes he will even have lost it so bad he has two opposing desires at once, like: come in my room, go away... we call that the twilight zone. Hitting during meltdowns used to be a trend, but we're moving out of that phase it seems, Thank Goodness!!
This is what is normal for my child. I view him as very persistent and strong-willed.
