How to Deal with and Prevent Temper Tantrums – Video

This video is solely on how to prevent temper tantrums.  I’ll be talking about managing them in my next video.

Tempter tantrums may begin to emerge at around 12 months old.

Your child is becoming more mobile and more independent than she was at the crawling stage.  He wants to perform a certain task and when he can’t, he gets frustrated, flings the said toy and begins stamping his feet through sheer frustration.

Or she may want to play with the buttons on the brand new Plasma TV and being told no, just doesn’t cut it for her, so she flings herself on the floor and the screaming begins.

Or maybe, it’s because your child has learned that if he did indeed throw a temper tantrum, then he will eventually get whatever it is that he wants.

No matter the reason, and there are more, temper tantrums need to be taken care off, dealt with and managed properly otherwise, your child may still be having them way beyond 3 – 4 years old, and you are the only one who can do this for your child.

The sooner you help them through it, the better it is for all concerned.

Here’s a video that I hope will help you do this.  If you have any questions or concerns, then do not hesitate to contact me for your free one hour consultation.  Sometimes, that’s all it takes.

Tips on how to prevent temper tantrums: (covered in more detail in the video)

  • Have fewer, clearer and realistic rules – can they manage them
  • Stick to your routines so they know what is happening and when
  • Keep them occupied – give them something to do.  If they are doing something that you don’t want them to do, then offer them an alternative as opposed to just taking the activity away, and then leaving them with nothing
  • Keep them informed of what is going on even if it means providing them with a running commentary this helps prepare them for any changes.  Toddlers sometimes just don’t like changing gears especially when they’re having a good time so prepare them.  The video tells you how to do this.
  • Praise, praise, praise when they are being good.  Pay attention to when they are behaving well and what they are doing and not on the negative things.  Praise go a long, long way. Acknowledge good behaviour
  • Is the request unreasonable?  If it’s not then  deal with it, if it’s not then allow them to do it.  Ask yourself why not.

Consistency is the key and if you’re trying to change a certain unwanted behaviour, and you have the tools to do so, then add persistency to that too.

Don’t just struggle with it, deal with it for your sake and that of your child’s.
