Does anybody know a good book to help me figure out how to deal with behavior problems? Here's the scenario - Very busy household. Juju gets frustrated cause something he want isn't happening quickly enough and starts to have a temper tantrum. There is a very small window of opportunity to give him what he wants, and if it doesn't happen, then he will go into a full blown meltdown that we cannot bring him out of. He may scream bloody murder for 30 min to an hour - if he had better motor control he would be violent. We feel like we are creating a monster. It isn't our way to just give into a kid cause they throw a tantrum, but if we don't, then he looses control. I feel like I have to stay 3 steps ahead of him, so that I'm always ready for what he is going to want - and I'm doomed to fail cause I have too much responsibility to be able to do that. I'm at a complete loss as how to deal with this. The behavior is completely different from my NT kids. I can tell him to stop screaming, and I can see him trying, but he just can't.
