My almost 8 year old son....

I'm at my wits end! My son has melt downs when things do not go his way, especially when around our extended family. If I say no to something, or yes, but after dinner or if he gets frustrated about something, he cries, not quietly. When I try to discuss it with him, he mocks me and doesn't want to hear it. He does the same to my husband. I do not give in, I send him to his room to cool down and he emerges like nothing happened. I thought that eventually he would stop this behavior due to the fact that he doesn't get his way but it hasn't stopped. It's gotten worse. Any and all suggestions are welcome. Thanks
