Evolution of the tantrum

We recently had Miloh evaluated and it was confirmed that he's throwing tantrums at a level of kids twice his age. Another interesting fact is that he can string words together in a sentence structure better than I can even though he can barely speak.

I've been watching how his tantrums have evolved and came up with an infographic of the evolution of the tantrum.

There may be other levels we haven't hit such as ones that include running away from home or yelling at your sister during Yom Kippur services when you're only four rows away from the Rabbi (hypothetically) but I'm confident this will bring us to the terrible twos as they seem to be stuck at level 6, and have gone down in the amount of time for each.

  1. LOVE IT! I have a brand-new 2-year-old and I can see him doing all of these. Well done, sir. Well done!

  2. Fantastic! I need to learn about those levels, though. Not that I want to throw tantrums, but what does "Level 3" mean?

    Running away from home? Yelling at your absolutely perfect and wonderful older sister during Yom Kippur services? How do you even remember these things? (I do remember when you "ran away" from home...)

  3. i think my favorite thing that mymy does is how she looks at herself in the mirror as she passes it screaming and spinning like a crazy person. it's like she wants to check in on her performance just for her to see if it is up to par. p.s. my fave thing on the chart is the upper left hand corner

  4. Jody - that's the hardest part of this kind of chart, right? Unless you can find something designy that makes sense.

  6. My 84 y o mom performs on Levels 3-6, and as above poster noted, also checks herself in the mirror. And, no dementia etc., is not part of her diagnosis. She's been this way our whole lives.
