Let him throw the tantrum? I usually give my son a heads up when I’m about to turn off the tv.. like 10 more min. Next commercial. Or last episode. He threw tantrums every time at first but now it’s a short whine or scream and then he goes to find something else to do. My husband is the same way as yours. I’ll invite my son to go play with me outside. Some times my husband will come out to play too and then I’ll sneak back inside, forcing them to play with each other. Once my son is outside, it’s hard to get him to come back inside.
