    Oh, man… you have gone pro. I’m on kid three and I would still have a hard time making through all 22 minutes.

    My son threw the biggest tantrum today that I have EVER seen.  It was insane.  Luckily my husband was the one who had to make it through the 30 minutes with ours - I don’t’ think I could have handled it at the end of the day.

    All two of us, ha.  You have to know you are a rock star, because you won!  Dr. Phil says it is best to not get into a battle of wills with your child, but if you do, you have to win every time.  Hopefully next time it will only take 18 minutes…and fewer gray hairs.

    I know I wasn’t one of the “both of you” as I’m number six or so and throw in the fact that I’m not a “mommy blogger” & what not but, I do appreciate this article just the same!

    Good job Mom! It’s so nice to hear the successful outcomes of Standoffs. (Since we all know, it doesn’t always go that way… sigh.)

    Well done. You got off easy. My dude’s average was about 45-60 minutes. Fortunately he’s outgrown them…most of the time.

    I had the same experience when my first boy at the age of 3. I can not stop his
    tantrum for 3 hours. i think this age is really hard to handle the toodler.

    Oh my. Yesterday was the same morning for us. Every.Single.Thing. was wrong and required a drawn-out explosion of hysterics. I’m so glad to know we’re not the only ones dealing with this.

    Michelle, I didn’t want to say anything but I can’t stand ‘em.

    It’s a well known fact that the threes are harder than the “Terrible” twos. It’s the world’s oldest joke. (Aside from Santa)
