Parenting Assistance – Dealing With Temper Tantrums

By Joy Davenport

Children between the ages of one to 4 years of age normally throw fits due to irritation or anger. Whenever you, since their mother or father, do not meet their demands, they will behave in an irrational manner to try and get attention to themselves. Then again, you should be aware that such behavior is reasonably typical and it ought to be treated patiently instead of overreacting.

Staying patient may be difficult, when all you really feel like doing is providing them a good slap, which we all know would be the totally incorrect thing to do..

Kids, by nature, want to do things their own way, regardless of whether it is right or wrong. Actually, they’re only trying to be independent. For instance, they normally want to dress themselves, regardless of the truth that they are way too young to do it correctly, and if in the act they’re offered help, it may cause another outburst. Rather than interfering with their independence, you need to leave them to try and do their best, since it’s part of the learning process. They’ll most likely be just too pleased to allow you to finish the job after a few minutes.

Taking a bath is another prime cause for a tantrum.. In the event that your kid dislikes taking a bath, you can try saying that they have 5 more minutes left to play after which its bath time. Aim to make the time a lot more interesting so they learn to appreciate the experience, for example new water playthings, just to be enjoyed at bath time, splashes, peek a boo games with the face flannel and many others.

In the same way,your kid will throw a tantrum when exhausted and as a result a proper schedule have to be prepared and followed regarding the time when they should be allowed to play and when they should be put to sleep. At this young age, all youngsters will need an afternoon nap. Attempt to keep to this routine every single day and your child will end up much less tired and irritable during the time they’re awake..

You should not forget that a child has a short memory span and also has little understanding as to the reason why they are not allowed to do a particular thing that they want to do, and they forget in a flash the reason they were scolded. A lot of patience is needed on your part to manage them.

Often, they will become frustrated due to boredom and you need to determine the main reason as to why they’re behaving in a particular fashion. If they are irritated because of boredom, you can try to keep them occupied in some activities that they may like doing, and it may occasionally alter their mood. Engaging your kids in various activities could also turn out to be an educational learning experience. Putting them in front of the TV for hours to calm them down is not a proper way to face this problem since the child gets to see and learn desirable as well as undesirable content.

Since a parent, you need to tactfully deal with their tantrums rather than by overreacting to them.

It may be a trying time for you both, but with love and patience, you’re going to get through it.
