Just in case you’re having temper tantrums. Let’s have a look at some ideas for calming them down.
You should be aware of when a tantrum is likely to occur. Prepare distractions and refreshments in advance for circumstances that are likely to be difficult.
- Be proactive in your approach. Consider the environment through the eyes of your child and make appropriate plans.
- Respond as soon as possible. Spot signs of discomfort and intervene as soon as possible. When the small boy is still cheerful, leave outings. Move to a separate room and try to divert his attention with something else.
- Keep your expectations in check. Inappropriate demands are the cause of many outbursts.
- Don’t scold. A tantrum is not deserving of attention, but it is also not deserving of punishment.
- Don’t harbor a grudge against anyone. Allow a tantrum to end when it is over. Don’t bring it up again. Just move on.
- Whisper. You should be quieter the louder your child is. It won’t stop the tantrum, but it will help you maintain your composure.
