What age did your child's tantrums stop?

My ds still has screaming, arguing, kicking type tantrums a few times a day (age 7). They're copable with providing I'm consistent with the usual toddler-style techniques (and I am). I'm presuming they're due to his special needs, but up till what age would this behaviour be 'normal'?

Dunno. I'm 38 and can still throw one if I need to.

I was going to write exactly the same comment Rudolph grin

well DS1 slowed down from around 5yrs up until 8yrs......then started all over again (he's 10 now)

DS2 never really tantrummed much as a baby but now he's hit 7 seems to have found his groove

But like Rudolph and earwicga I'm in my 30's and can still throw one if I'm in the right mood wink

MD - if your DTD2 is anything like my DS1 (who I refuse to let in his room during a tantrum has he's already managed to break some of the dodgy plaster off the walls blush) I can confirm.........yes there will be gnashing of teeth grin
