Dealing With Temper Tantrums
We’ve all been there. You’re at Target or the mall and your wonderful spawn decides to throw a temper tantrum.
Don't panic. Here's 5 easy ways to deal with the tantrum:
1. Take a deep breath.
2. Don't give in.
3. Get to the root of the problem.
If this is the case, you can fix that real easy. If it isn't, then move to the next step.
4. Don't yell back.
5. Keep'em safe.
If the tantrum escalates too far and it is taking too long for them to calm down, you may need to leave. Take them to the car, to a restroom or dressing room and wait it out. If you can, try to calm them down (by rubbing their back, letting them squeeze your hand, jumping up and down, etc) then let them know that once they are under control, their day can continue.
