How do you tame a baby or toddler’s tantrums?

ToddlerTantrums appear frequently more among strong-willed and deep-feeling children since their desire to do something or communicate a feeling is quite ahead of their verbal ability to do so, leading to frustration and consequent overwhelmed behaviors. Tantrums can very well exhaust parents and upset the child, but you can use a few tricks.

Identify tantrum triggers by keeping a tantrum diary. When and where do they often happen? What are reasons behind these triggers?

When a child is having a tantrum, be there for them, but it is also important to not always try to calm them down and shush them. Let toddlers mourn the loss of a toy or be sad when they have to leave Grandma’s house.
