Nanny 911: Stopping Toddler Temper Tantrums Around Mom
Some of his behaviors may come from sibling rivalry, especially now that his little sister is entering the more mobile phase. It is obvious he is seeking attention at home through toddler temper tantrums, considering he behaves so well at school. Talk to his teachers about the structure of his day there and try to keep it similar at home, with the same discipline.
Try to use a lot of positive reinforcement and keep him busy and stimulated. If a toddler temper tantrum does escalate and he gets aggressive toward you or his sister, you have to be firm and stick with your plan. Put the baby in a playpen or safe place and work with him on staying in a time-out for two minutes. It may take an hour at first, but be consistent and follow through and you'll see a change in him.
