There are at least two things that you should not do when confronted by a toddler having tantrums especially a toddler in or close to the 'terrible two's'; shouting does not help and smacking only makes things a lot worse. Your son is now at the right age to apply the time out method. When he starts with a tantrum just say 'Stop that!' in a clear,firm voice. Do not plead with him. If he does not listen immediately take him to his room and close the door. He must not be allowed out until he is completely quiet. Do this each and every time the instant he starts with a tantrum.
