Breaking Bad

Celebrity dads including Bryan Cranston, Kevin Bacon, Mike Myers and Tim Robbins share their experiences of toddlers acting up in the second episode of this compelling documentary about fatherhood.

The lives of celebrities may look easy, but a screaming toddler is a great leveler - even if you're acting royalty you're still going to struggle to calm a child in the middle of an epic tantrum.

In Episode 2: Standoffs, tantrums and testing boundaries, Hank Azaria seeks advice from his famous friends and a host of child experts about how to deal with the 'Terrible Threes'.

Hank's son Hal lulled his parents into a false sense of security by being a calm two-year-old, but now he's three-and-a-half-years-old and very wilful.

Watch the video above to see how Hank learns to cope with a child who says 'no' to everything and is savvy enough not to be easily distracted from his tantrums. As Hank says: "It's not for the fainthearted this stuff."

The next time your toddler's in the middle of a full-blown temper tantrum just think - what would Kevin Bacon do?
