    And here I am thinking ALL kids throw tantrums!

    Mine does occasionally, usually when he tries to dominate us and we don't give in. Bossy little mite he is!

    Tantrums are very rare with ds (5 yrs). He can get quite stroppy if he's hungry and will foot stomp, scowl, and try his best to 'reason' with you when he's been told 'no', but he doesn't really tantrum. I'm hoping dd won't be a tantrum thrower either!

    DS1 is 7 turning 8 this year and has never thrown even the smallest of tantrums. He is so quiet and only argues back if it is something he is absolutely certain of or he thinks about what the other person says and talks calmly about things.

    My two don't have tanties either. Dd6 occasionally flips out if she's had additives, but that rarely happens in public and we can always trace it back to something she's eaten.
    I think its totally a personality thing. Dd6 is a calm reasonable thinking child, a bit of an old head on young shoulders, dd5 is much more emotional but she follows her sisters example. If they don't get their way they will complain and cry but never chuck a tantie. I think dd6 tried it on once as a 1 or 2yo but we ignored her and she didn't try it again. I always admire parents who deal with tanties, I wouldn't know how to deal with it, I'd probably have a melt down myself lol

    That's like my DD (3) - provided she doesn't get hungry she's fine. If she gets hungry though she's grumpy as anything and starts to cry over everything.
    If she gets sick though it's game over, she gives up eating and sleeping and the whole world collapses

    DS (8) has never had a tantrum. He's sensitive and gets emotional sometimes, but that's it. He's so easy-going and is just a joy to have around in general. Always has been, from day dot.

    But it's all good, DD has made up for his lack of tantrums very successfully 😳
