want/don't want

My 3 1/2 year old son does this thing where he says he wants something, but when I give it to him he says he doesn't want it. If I take it away, he'll tell me he wants it. If I give it back... he doesn't want it. He'll start crying and have a tantrum. I don't know what to do. Does anyone know why he does this and how I can get him to stop?

Mine does this too.  I think it's just a phase. I  find the bigger deal I make of it, the more it becomes a game for him.  I'm pretty sure this too shall pass!

Sounds like a game he has. Say he wants a juice box, give it to him but if he says he doesn't want it tell him okay mommy will leave it here if u change your mind.
