Contained Blast vs. Noise Pollution

The answer is no.

My son throws a massive fit.  After a few minutes of intense rage, he calms down and life goes on.  I call this the contained blast.  Depending on how hungry he is or how tired, an evening is peppered with anywhere from 1 to 10 blasts.

You won’t like it when I’m angry.

My daughter negotiates.  Hours pass, countless time-outs are served, and the negotiations continue.  I call this noise pollution.

It is still, No. In an hour, it will still be, NO.

What’s worse, contained blasts or noise pollution?

How does your child respond to “no” and how do you deal with it when they disagree?
