Do You Have A Child Who Throws Tantrums?
Let’s start by remembering that Tantrums are a normal part of childhood development that occurs when children cannot express their feelings or meet expectations. There can be many different reasons for tantrums, such as not getting what you want because another child is first in line; restrictions on playtime and many others.
Parents often wonder if ignoring their child’s tantrum is the right thing to do. Tantrums are frustrating and difficult for parents, but they can be even more challenging for children. They may feel angry or upset that they aren’t getting what they want when they want it. Ignoring your child during a tantrum might seem like an easy way to get them to stop crying, but there are other ways you can help them calm down and learn how to handle frustration in healthy ways.
The best thing you can do when your child has a temper tantrum is to try to see things from your child's perspective and provide comfort and support while also setting limits on behaviour. If possible, remove your child from the situation so he doesn't escalate his behaviour by throwing things or hurting himself or others around him. Then give him choices so he can get the sense of control he needs, however, if he does not respond to this then give him time alone until he calms down before trying again to resolve whatever caused the outburst in the first place. You might need several tries before he is ready to talk about what happened calmly. Eventually, this approach will teach him how better to manage his feelings.
Tantrums are a normal part of development as we mentioned at the beginning. But, if your child is throwing tantrums more often or for longer periods of time than before, it may be an indication that something else is going on in their lives. It's important to work with them and find out what they need from you as parents so that they can feel better about themselves again! What has worked best for you when dealing with this situation?
