What to do when a child throws a fit?

Home More advice Kids

I have a four year old who I babysit for, and he has a tendency to throw a massive hissy fit whenever he doesn't get his way. He'll throw things, yell out things, stomp around the house, lock himself in his room, hit people, etc. When I try putting him in a time out, it doesn't work. What should I do when he throws his fits?
