When your child has a tantrum, sometimes it is hard to not morph into your own adult version of a tantrum in response. A great way to keep everyone involved calm, cool, and collected is to have a solid tantrum response in place and planned out.
“The book “Toddler Wise” specifically addresses Temper Tantrums in the “Toddler Topic Pool” chapter. It states that “how [a child] controls and expresses his emotions is far more important than the fact he merely controls or expresses himself…… A temper tantrum is a coping mechanism occurring because an individual has not learned how to correctly manage disappointment.” This is so important to us because we believe that part of raising adults is teaching our kids that they are responsible for their own emotions and they have a choice and control over how they handle them.”
Carrie has some great ideas for you to help your child (and therefore you!) maintain a happy heart or regain a happy heart after you stop the tantrum. Head over to Wiley adventures to read all about it. For more ideas on tantrums on this blog, check out:
