Val, thank you for responding! I was hoping you would.
Actually, since babyhood, Grimm has thrown ((((TANTRUMS)))) of epic proportions, when:
1. He picked up a tree root thinking it was a stick, and it refused to come away with him.
2. He learned that he can dig through snow, but discovered that puddle of solid ice cannot be dug through.
3. He discovered that he was unable to carry a cinderblock.
4. Food must be waited for during preparation stage.
5. A leash prevents instantaneous meet-n-greets with doggies on the street.
6. He cannot barge ahead and board the bus first--immediately the second it arrives.
Val, even today he emits garbled, warbling frustrated yodels when food doesn't come fast enough, when he cannot physically pick something up that he wants to carry, etc. It isn't just a response to being thwarted-- it is gotta have it right nowwww!
Training and training games have helped-- a lot. NILIF has helped. Being calmer around him has helped. More excersise has helped. Rewarding calm focus has helped. But his underlying tendency to flip out with impatience is a lifelong theme for Grimmi, and has put us both in danger.
Which DVD do you think is best? Is TTouch applicable for this particular problem, for impatience from <span style="color: #3333FF">TantrumBoy</span>?
