Jeziel’s son Malachi is only 11 months old and is starting to throw tantrums. Every day he throws a fit when they try to put him in his car seat. “He is as stiff as a plank of wood. He’s just like, nope I’m not going in.” Bec’s son threw a tantrum because he wanted a haircut but didn’t want a haircut. “I just stood there waiting it out. Not making eye contact with anyone walking past me.” So they wanted to know when did your kid have a tantrum?

Chris’s daughter had a tantrum because she couldn’t fly. “No matter how hard she tried she just couldn’t fly and it wasn’t fair.” Jane was tired of her daughter throwing tantrums over everything. “I had enough in Kmart Joondalup and I threw myself on the floor next to her and threw the biggest tantrum. All the adults were just losing it. She stood up with a mortified look on her face and told me I was embarrassing her. Guess what she never threw another tantrum.”
