If the behavior was a one-time event, you needn't do anything apart from what you usually do. If your son's difficult behavior has become a more regular occurrence, you'll have to learn some new behavior of your own to manage it. Up to this time, you have apparently been fortunate to have an easily-managed child. It's typical of children to display some difficult behavior that requires limit setting, including discipline. Now, be sure that there is no medical problem; his dramatic behavior could be the result of feeling ill, depleted. If all is well medically, take a look at Lynn Clark's book titled SOS Help for parenrs, and follow its procedures 'to a T', so to speak. You'll be pleased with the results. As an aside, what do you mean when you mention 'how far can I go?' Are you contemplating physical discipline? If so, you needn't engage in it; there's no need.
