My stepson is still having tantrums at the age of 8. A few years ago his parents went through a divorce and his behaviour has gone downhill since then. I don’t know what to do with him, the kicking, screaming, shouting and wailing is getting worse; trying to calm him down or reason with him in this state is pointless. Please, any advice would be great.

Tantrums at 8yrs old...

He probably needs some counseling. It must be so hard to articulate your feelings at 8, he has been through so much. As a family you probably need to talk to someone too, to gain strategies in dealing with these behaviors. It can get better, you all just need to work on it. Good luck

Ome Kids will always be prone to tantrums, just the way they do them changes.
Does he have someone to talk to about his feelings.
What consequences do you have for a tantrum.
Are they actually tantrum or are they meltdowns.
What leads up to them
How long do they last

Sometimes loosing your cool or throwing a tanty may be the only way they feel they are getting noticed.
Alot of big changes have happened for him and he may just need to fel noticed/valued.
I would try councelling and looking inti other techniques for him to express himself.
Is there anything in particular that causes the tantrums?
