MORE INFORMATION

Tantrums can be a difficult problem to deal with. It is hard when that beautiful baby, who you love dearly, turns into a screaming, red-faced, demanding monster.

Your child takes up a lot of your time and energy. It can feel like a slap in the face when your toddler repays you by demanding their own way, and cries and screams to persuade you to give them what they want. Instinctively you know that it would be wrong to give in, but you may not be sure exactly how to stop the tantrum without giving your toddler their own way.

A full-blown lie-on-the floor tantrum can cause you to feel angry and resentful towards your tiny child. If the tantrum is in public, you may also feel embarrassed and judged – as if you are a bad parent.

Yet tantrums are normal. Your young child is growing up and learning that they can influence the world around them. They are learning to flex their little muscles, to have some control over what is happening.

To reduce the tantrums, it’s important to look at what is going on for your child, and what factors are making your child more likely to cry and get upset.

Understanding your child is the first step to reacting appropriately and consistently so that your child’s tantrums become shorter and less intense, and eventually disappear.
