    I had a few moments that I wasn't proud of in yelling at my beautiful ds1. Then I started applying the same rules to myself as I do him. We have a no yelling rule and yes when I yell I go in the 'corner' as well. Quite embarassing for a grown adult but why should I be able to yell while ds1 Isnt? It only took me a few times before I learned my lesson. And I tell you what ds1 has responded positively - it is much easier to call him down and get him to stop yelling/tantruming now that I don't yell.

    Hang in there mumma xx

    So much good advice here.

    I agree that you've got to find something that works for you and your child, for me it was the 1-2-3 Magic method which got me through a rough patch when DD was just turning 3, and we still use it. The other thing I sometimes do is calmly walk away or turn my back when she's tantruming, it really does work!
