Throw Tantrum - Kids Behavior
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Nobody ever said being the parent of a toddler was going to be easy and after the initial eighteen months of your smiling, happy child you are suddenly hit by the ability of your child to throw tantrum. This really should not be a surprise to most of us as it tends to happen to a majority of parents. Apart from their ability to throw tantrum raising a child is very rewarding but reward only follows hard work.

Throw tantrum - How do I handle this?

Every child is different so it is up to you as a parent to find out what causes a temper tantrum or what in fact triggers a tantrum in your child. As an example you could try the local superstore. In every store these days there is a toy section placed very near the entrance ( on purpose I must point out ). Now, if your child has been in this store before then he/she will remember the toy section and will obviously want to visit this section.

Before you even enter the shop discuss the situation with the child saying that they are not allowed a toy and you do not want them to play up when in the store. Make sure they know that if they avoid the toy section and do not kick up a stink they will get a reward - purchase them a cheap candy or fruit ( for a healthier option ). By discussing the situation before hand you have eliminated the threat of a throw tantrum.

Throw tantrum - Don't fall for it!

Kids are way cleverer than we give them credit for - believe me. If you are a soft touch ( as I was initially with my son ) then they will see this in you and take full advantage. Now, rewarding a tantrum will only work in the short term so don't ever think about doing this, even if you are in a public place. It would always be an easier option to give in at a public place just to stop people from looking but in the long run you are making things a lot harder for yourself. The child in question must learn that a temper tantrum will not be rewarded in any kind of situation and this will become a strong building block for you to go forward from.

Every child has the ability to throw tantrum and it is up to us as parents to stamp it out as soon as possible - the terrible twos come along in every child's development.
