Dealing with Child tantrums

Most parents have witnessed their little bundles of joy in the throws of a temper tantrum. Even the most dignified parent has been left red-faced and wanting to be swallowed into the ground while their toddler is having a public meltdown.

Here are a few easy ideas for avoiding temper tantrums:

Don’t Let Your Child Get Over Tired – Don’t let your child become too tired. Set a regular nap routine and try to stick to it, and make sure your child goes to bed at a reasonable time and gets enough sleep during the night. Tiredness is often the first reason for a tantrum.

Give Them Time – Allow enough time for activities like getting dressed, brushing their hair and getting in and out of the car. Your child will want to do a lot of these things on his own and rushing him is a sure way to start a tantrum. Give him a little extra time and let him try to be independent by allowing him to do certain things for himself.

Wise words. Yet, for a parent hustling a child off to day care, time is the one thing most dear!

I remember walking away form my child in a shopping mall. The old ladies were shaking their heads. I knew the best thing was to let him vent!

To prevent our children have a tantrum in my opinion way that is effective enough way, to be in front, with the position of our body parallel to your child, and holding they shoulder and looked sharp eye and said in a firm voice so that they shut up and stop a tantrum, if not then they will punished. His/her sentence was not too hard, you can punish them to sit for a while, such as 15 minutes. With this penalty will be a deterrent effect on your child is. This technique I learned from watching the TV show "Nanny 911". And proven effective.Parenting Blog
