    What do you do if they won't sit still and are frustrated because they think you don't care and wont listen? Should you sit with them, show that you care and try to reason by talking or walk away and talk after the tantrum ends?

When my daughter throws a tantrum, I tell her in quiet voice to go to her room until she calms down. I tell her, "When you are not crying anymore, you can come out and play again." She usually calms down after a few minutes and wants a hug afterwards.

    I've also noticed, the calmer the tone I use with my kids, the better they react. If I get upset or irritable, they feed on that, and it gets even worse.
