It is a common problem! Related issues include:

Personality of the child
I believe temperaments are built in the personality of the child and child is born with them.

Immature development of language and not understanding what the parents want and not understanding what the child wants could be factor.

How to deal with Temper Tantrums
Explain the rules that apply to the child.
Use rewards to complying; give rewards closer to the good behavior; provide immediate reinforcement for any worthy behavior.
Ignore and do not yield to aggression; ignore behaviors in spite repeated attempts to get attention.
Provide alternative activities to give time to settle down.

Time-out for ages: 2 to 6 years of age
Duration: one minute per year
Provide a warning once
Provide an explanation
Return to time-in immediately after
Consistency in reward and punishment techniques and a lot of patients will be your friend!
