Temper Temper - Dealing with Your Toddler's Tantrums

Temper Temper - Dealing with Your Toddler's Tantrums

Caron B. Goode, EdD

Temper tantrums are a part of growing up. As your child moves from babyhood to toddlerhood, she learns at an extraordinary pace. She is literally learning something new everyday. Unfortunately, her cognitive and physical skills are often times not in sync. This leads to frustration, which leads to temper tantrums.

Your toddler has tantrums for a number of reasons. Her pants itch. The puzzle piece won't fit. You gave her milk when she wanted juice. Since they are still learning to talk, toddlers have a hard time expressing their needs. It is very frustrating for them to want something and not be able to get it. This, coupled with their limited problem-solving skills, leads to tantrums.

To parents, these emotional outbursts often appear to have no rhyme or reason. Many times they don't. Many other times your adult reasoning stands in the way. With good cause. When she takes of flying leap off the stairs, you see broken bones and hospital visits. She sees something else entirely. She sees an opportunity for fun. Fun you are denying her and that is frustrating.

For most children, temper tantrums ease off with maturity. Once their speaking and reasoning skills improve, tantrums are no longer necessary. In the meantime, it is important that parents establish a consistent way of dealing with them. By doing this, you show your child the importance of clear communication and emotional control.

Dealing with Temper Tantrums

•    Cooler Heads Prevail. It is important that parents remain calm in the midst of a tantrum. It goes without saying; these episodes can be as frustrating for you as they are for your child. But remaining in control of yourself and your emotions sets a positive example. It shows your child that you value calm communication and conflict resolution.

•    Think Before You Act. There are many ways to handle temper tantrums. Take a few seconds to evaluate the situation before you decide on an action. You may be able to distract your child. Replace a dangerous plaything or activity with a safer one. Remove your child from a room or group to escape over stimulation and calm down. Each temper tantrum calls for its own action. Be sure to think it through before you act. This can mean the difference between soothing and escalating her frustration.

•    Give Her Frustration a Nod. Acknowledge your child's frustration without condoning the tantrum. This validation can have a soothing effect. Let her know that you understand she is upset, but also let her know there is a better way of handling it. Then when she calms down, give her those tools. Show her better ways of expressing her wants and needs.

•    The Talk. Do not try to talk or reason with your child when she is in the throes of a tantrum. It does not work. It also increases both your frustr...
