Our lil man seems to have raging fit every day around the same time (5ish). I cannot figure out what is causing them to happen. He takes 10 mg of Adrenal twice a day (8am and 1pm is when I have been giving it to him).
Today he had a massive fit because he did not like what I made for dinner. His tantrum lasted almost an hour. He was told he did not have to eat any but he had to sit at the table for 2 min's. This caused him to start tantruming which included him tearing apart his bedroom, hitting and kicking and shouting all the usual nasties..
When he is in his rage you cannot speak to him, it just makes things worse. You cannot hold him because he just hits and kicks. I sat in his bedroom door way, and would not let him out until he got himself under control. Half the contents of his room where thrown at me.
After 45 min he finally laid on the bed. I slowly moved closer until I was at the edge of the bed. Once at the edge of the bed I started rubbing his back, and asked him if I could give him a hug.
I try to talk to him about what he was so upset but he doesn't seem to "get it", he just kept saying "I was mad at you".
After that he was fine. He sat down at the table ,and ate dinner as if nothing had ever happened. He cleaned up all of the mess he made without being told. I am at a loss as to how to better handle him.
The rest of the day goes off without a hitch he gets dressed no problem, cleans up, plays very well with his toys, and is easily redirected.
