    Default Children who never have tantrums

    I reaslied the other week that DD (who will be 4 in December) has never had a proper tantrum, ever. She has the occasional hissy-fit but never a full on tantrum. She isn't afraid of standing her ground either. I was just wondering how common this is?

    Maybe it's payback for the hellish time she gave me in the first year of her life?

    Lol! DD2 was quite similar, she's 4.5 now and didn't have a big tantrum until she was about 3.5. She's only had a handful since (watch out when she does though, they are something to behold).

    She is 1000 x more stubborn and determined than most young children I know too. She really knows her own mind. So it's interesting to read your daughter is similar.

    Yep, my second DD never really threw a tantrum...I remember one big one, that's it. But on the flip side I already know she's going to be the one that keeps us up at night worrying when she's a teenager.

    My son is 4 next month and hasn't ever had one either. He has never carried on in public, had a meltdown in the supermarket. He is just really placid and goes with the flow most of the time. He can be very strong willed at times but never loses his mind over anything.

    DS ( 4 next month) has never had a tantrum as such, he gets cranky when he's over tired and there's only been one time in Myer he lost it crying and screaming when he was 2 but that's because he thought he lost me , I always thought it was because he's an only child and he's pretty easy going and easily distracted

    DS dosnt have tantrums as such, yes he gets cranky when he's tired and has occasionally cried in the the shopping centre when he's wanted something he can't have, he gets angry too but I can't say he's ever had what I'd call a tantrum. To me a tantrum is screaming, throwing themselves on the floor for a prolonged time, that sort of thing.

    Same here - DS1 who turned 4 last month has never had a tantrum. Like PP's he's just a laid back easy going kid. Takes care of his little brother, is never mean to him, gives him everything he asks for. He's basically my little friend, we still haven't had to deal with any typical 'toddler' behaviour.

    My DS (who is 14) has never had a single tanty in his life ever. His baby sister on the other hand...
