Tantrums

Often tantrums can be avoided by making sure that children are well rested and not hungry or thirsty when running errands or doing other activities. When a child does have a tantrum, often the best thing to do is to ignore it. Sometimes removing the child from the situation is helpful. It is usually best not to discuss the situation until well past the time that your child has calmed down. Demands should not be given into, but once calm you can discuss how he or she might better handle his or her frustration next time. Encourage your child to use words rather than an emotional display to let you know how he or she is feeling.
