3 Tips for Tantrums

Stop talking – Children see parents’ reasons and explanations as sure signs that the parent doesn’t know what he or she is doing. Parents need a plan that focuses on gentle but decisive actions—not words.

Check out – When a child whines or melts down after a denied request, the parent has 10 seconds to decide what to do. No talking, for example, no eye contact, increase physical distance as much as possible. Soon the kids will begin to realize that tantrums get them only one thing: Nothing.

Be Consistent – Can you apply the same strategies in public? Not only can you, you have to! Attempts at reasoning or distraction in a restaurant or grocery store will bring on a tantrum in no time at all.
