    Severe outbursts grossly out of proportion to the situation, in the form of verbal rages or physical aggression, several times a week -- to parents, these would seem the most common elements of childhood temper tantrums.

    They are also the proposed criteria for a new childhood mental disorder called temper dysregulation disorder with dysphoria.

    I suppose there's a spanking new drug for it soon to follow? I've said for YEARS that anger management should be a required course in middle school at the latest, for both students and teachers, admin. Especially admin..:tongue:

    We also would have some new abbreviations to add to our list? TDDD? or TDX3?
