I did not expect to actually laugh at that. Good job.

One of my nieces threw a fit like that and my brother got down on the floor and joined her.  The tantrum ended quickly.

This.

Not just in the house, but anywhere really, especially in public. Back in "my day" it would have been almost unheard of to see a kid in a store or restaurant throwing a tantrum like this for that very reason. Of course, these days you would get your kids taken away by CPS if you did that, no wonder kids are so out of control these days.

Of course I have.  But one doesn't have to have or dealt with a kid or talked with a kid or SEEN a kid to know that kids (like any human being) don't particularly like it when someone's making fun of them.  If they're already upset it's not exactly going to make them happy about the situation.  If anything, it'll just piss them off.

But hey, don't take my word for it.  Go mock a kid.  Mimic everything they do.  When they get angry, just mock them more.  See how far it gets you, because you're obviously the expert on child psychology, right?

My son was throwing fits like this up to the age of ten or so. It was suggested that when he threw such fits that I should call everyone in the house to watch him and critique him on how well he was doing. Since nothing else was working I tried it. The next time he threw such a fit I called his sisters to come help me give him advice on how well he was doing and how he could do better. After that one time, he never threw another fit again.

I tried the same technique on a granddaughter that was living in my home when she was around six years old. She enjoyed the attention so much that she took our critiques to heart and modified her fits based on our advice.

I have used the technique demonstrated in this video on younger grandchildren. It has worked rather well. It seldom calms them down, but it does seem to work at quieting them down. Then, after a short while of laying face down on the floor after they have stopped screaming and drumming their hands and feet on the floor, they will get up as if the fit had never happened.

These are, of course, just anecdotes. They are my personal experiences with four children and eight grandchildren. Take it for what it's worth.

Actually, mocking them does work. Think about it, if someone is mocking you doing something annoying, do you continue to do it? No, you see how annoying it is and stop.

At least people with an IQ over 70 do....

Yup. In fact the ridicule is probably a very effective way to modify out of control behavior like that. The kid/person gets on the spot feedback that their tactic is not only no longer working but having the opposite of the desired effect. Their effort to terrorize the social unit is actually being viewed with amusement and reducing the respect the are getting from their peers. Since we're social animals shame is a very powerful motivator, so being shamed by the group for behavior like that should really be a very effective way to encourage more mature conflict resolution tactics from the tantrum-thrower. Like anything, of course, if used judiciously...

You'll never convince some amount of people though. Some people just flat out refuse to acknowledge some simple truths about human nature.

Do you people realize how stupid "back in my day" stories always sound?   Always.  Back in your day, black people and white people were segregated, people were given lobotomies to treat mental illness, and there was actual substantial debate about whether or not smoking tobacco was bad for your health.  There was nothing all that great about "back in your day", and we're a lot better off now then we were back then.

And smacking a kid is farking wrong and doesn't teach them anything except that you're an abusive asshole.  If I saw you smack a 6-year-old in the mouth for throwing a tantrum in public, CPS is the last thing you'd have to worry about.

Best thing to do about tantrums isn't even to mock them.  It's to ignore them.  What doesn't work won't get repeated.

The "back in my day" crowd usually implies that everyone coddles their kid if they aren't hitting them. Also, they didn't wear helmets when they rode their bikes, and they survived, so kids wearing helmets is dumb. Their cribs had lead paint, they rode in the backs of pickup trucks, and seatbelts are stupid. I think there is a country song about it, actually, and I am not even kidding about that.

And I would hope you would also get knocked flat on your ass.
Try working in a prison some time and see what this recent trend in refusing to discipline your children had wrought.
The reason so many more kids are rotten little bastards now is because of pussies like you. Beating the hell out of a kid for minor things is not cool, knocking them on their ass when they need it is exactly what they need. It has worked for thousands of years and now suddenly it is wrong? Bullshiat.
I was abused by an asshole dad who used beatings as revenge, not discipline, and I still can tell the difference between abuse and discipline. And I can see the need for it.

Sorry about your dad and your experiences. Still, this is a silly statement. I don't see why you seem to think that the only way to discipline a child is to hit them. Do you think that all the guys are in prison because they had "time outs" instead of the belt? They had absent parents, most likely. They aren't in prison because they weren't disciplined in your chosen way. They are probably in prison for reasons not related to their discipline growing up, but if it IS related, it isn't because they were given time outs, it is because they were ignored for the most part and not disciplined in any fashion whatsoever.

Whoopings are not the only tool to discipline children. Kind of like crayons. Some are used all of the time, others are used less often. Which crayon you use depends on the child.
You are partly, but only part right about why they are in the slammer. But all in all, it is mostly because of lack of discipline. The anti- spanking crusaders have taken most effective crayons away.

It's curious how you went right to interpreting my statement as the thing they would have to worry about is me.  lol...sorry, no internet tough guy here.  I'd call the cops - that's what they would have to worry about.  But it's interesting that the first thing you thought of was...violence.  Hm, I wonder why that is?  I wonder if we'll find out if we keep reading...?

You're making a heck of an argument here, it's just not the argument you thought you were making.  Let's see...abused by father, doesn't see a problem with hitting kids because sometimes that's ok.  Got it - thanks for chiming in and confirming that your dad had a real hand in your upbringing with his abuse!

Because he certainly did.  Snark aside, do you not recognize this all-too-common pattern?  You need therapy if these comments reflect your real thoughts on parenting, and I sure hope to hell you don't have any kids.

There is never a good reason to "knock a kid on their ass".  There are plenty of excellent ways to discipline kids without resorting to violence.  In fact, violence is the last refuge of the person who doesn't know how to parent their kids - your argument is all backwards.  Pussies are the parents who hit.  It takes hard work to discipline without hitting, which is nothing more than an easy cop-out that provides immediate gratification for the abuser and teaches the kid all the wrong things.  And what's more cowardly and pussy than a grown adult knocking someone many times smaller and lighter than them around?  Seek help - you need it.
