Need help with 3-year-old son's behavior
My 3-year-old son's behavior is totally unacceptable.  I'm not sure what to do anymore.  He hits, screams, throws things, and says the most horrible things.  I had to leave our family's Christmas party because his behavior was so out of control.  I put him in time out and try to talk to him about his behavior but it doesn't seem to make a difference.  I don't know how much "reasoning with" a 3 year old can be done anyway.  What's the best way to get this behavior to stop?

You are right - reasoning per se is a waste of time. Set clear limits, follow through on them consistently. Follow the guidelines in Lynn Clark's SOS Help for Parents and you'll see results.
