How to make a 7 year old snap out of a tantrum...

Yell at him for kicking the gate - ask him to open the gate, yell at him for not doing it fast enough...yell at him for trying to climb over the gate -- and at the top of the steps -- tell him not to bang the gate -- just close it gently.

It works! (as long as there isn't a gate!)
