Avoid Toddler Tantrums

Most of the children around the world take the help of tantrums sometime or the other and for one reason or another. It is really difficult for parents to handle their toddlers at that time. It may even be a very embarrassing situation for the parents, specially if they are in a public place or a party.

So when controlling tantrums are so difficult, why not try a way to keep these tantrums at bay? Yes, it is possible to avoid toddler tantrums completely. To know more about it, read on.

Kids take the help of tantrums for different reasons. If parents understand the possible causes of their toddler’s tantrums and take precaution against it or give extra attention to that area so that the reason may not come to surface at all, then kids will not have to resort to tantrums for expressing themselves.

You need to be aware of your child’s needs. You must have a clear idea of the time when a child may require fulfillment of any basic need and before the child has to express it throw tantrums, take proper action to fulfill his needs.

Be alert of his feelings and give him support and comfort always so that he does not feel insecure, scared, lonely or ignored. Learn to understand his subtle hints that he gives away before taking to difficult behavior.

You need to create a better bonding with your kid to understand his needs and feelings. Spend time with him whenever you can and play with him and talk to him. This will automatically create a deeper bonding between you and your child and give him a sense of being cared and loved.

Treat your child with respect – always. Show respect to his feelings and likings. Give him options if needed so that he doesn’t feel that he is forced to do something or his choice is being ignored. If he wants to wear a particular dress for any particular occasion then let him wear it, if it is proper for the day or occasion.

If not, then give him options and at the same time let him know that he can wear his chosen dress on the next celebration or so. Create clear guidelines for him so that he knows what he is not supposed to do. This will save both of you from many odd or difficult situations.
