    Thanks all, DH and I are just often at our wits end with the screaming and crying

    Last night (and many other nights) after a long day at work, DH comes home to screaming and crying and I can tell he's over it as he just wants to spend time with him but he just gets yelled at by DS

    I think a lot of it is due to me not giving him enough attention either

    Yup, DS is jus over 3.5 and just coming out of his tantrum phase now. He was a hell of a 3 year old. Tantrums over nothing at the shops where the worst. Once he wouldnt hold my hand across the road so i picked him up and stood him on the outside of the sliding doors, i went in (i could see him obviously) and he screamed for 20 mins!!!

    Hes much better now though. Its just a phase.

    My only piece of advice would be to NOT GIVE IN!!. Let him have is tantrum then when he is finished explain that that kind of behaviour is not ok.

    Dont give him what hes wants. Yes its hard but it only takes ONCE to let him think its ok. I think this is why DS threw tantrums...DD never did.

    Try to remember this is a normal part of toddlerhood and it will stop!!!

    My DS still naps nearly every day (cant go 2 days in a row without a nap) for a couple of hours. If he doesnt he is a mess and the tantrums start again. Maybe a couple of times a week put him down for a sleep!

    DS is almost 3.5 now and we found he was a nightmare for a couple of months just after he turned 3. We struggled to take him out in public because he was being so difficult.

    His behaviour has been quite pleasant lately though. I'm hoping it lasts, though knowing my DS he tends to go through a bit of a grotty phase that lasts a couple of weeks, then returns to being pretty good. Ah, the rollercoaster ride of being a threenager parent!

    yep completely normal

    I eventually decided on a rule "you could only cry if you are hurt". So if she was crying the first question is 'are you hurt?' ... and if not, no attention until she stopped crying. It worked maybe 10% of the time ...

    That's totally normal. Kids at that age normally cry over things or foods hey cannot have or don't like. You don't have to worry about it. I have experienced that with my children either.
