Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Getting angry, throwing tantrums, crying when they don't comply with their wishes, throwing objects and other behaviors that seem disgraceful to children are often called tantrums. This condition is common in children, especially those aged 1-4 years.
It is said to be common, because often by doing this, parents will 'give up' and comply with the child's wishes by giving toys, or doing what the child asks. So the child will feel that to get something, they have to tantrum first. If allowed to continue, it will become a bad habit in the future.
What you can do to deal with tantrums in children, first of all, is to stay calm. Don't get too excited and emotional. Take him to a quiet place to calm his tantrums, especially if you're in a public place. Look for distractions, give your child understanding and don't play physical.

If you feel that the information is not sufficient or you need help in dealing with your child, then you may consult a psychologist or child psychiatrist about the problem you are facing. I hope you and your family are always healthy.
That's all, hope it helps.
