    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    First of all Do Not give him what he wants when he throws a temper, you'll be reinforcing that behavior and showing him it works. Second of all, try to avoid what sets his temper off. For example, if he likes things on a schedule, then do your best to keep that schedule. If he throws a fit in a store then don't take him for a few weeks, try again and tell him if he misbehaves he's going in the car. Stick to it. Don't make idle threats...do what you say you will. When he gets violent, put him in a room and let him be as long as he is safe in there. and finally, talk to his doctor.
