TERRIBLE TWO’S AND TANTRUM THREE’S

TERRIBLE TWO'S AND TANTRUM THREE'S

Every parent loves their children but there will always come a time when that love is pushed to the limit. Toddlers are cute and funny but the toddler years can also be a nightmare. The terrible twos are called that for good reason. Sometimes just being prepared can make all the difference in the world and can prevent those outbursts of chaos known as the temper tantrum. There are some ways to better handle the outbursts but no two children are alike. Not every method works for every child but there are certain solutions that work overall for these typical behaviors.

Frustration is the primary cause of the temper tantrum and the frustration can be boiled down usually three things. They are either tired, hungry or a good combination of both. The tantrums usually happen at an inconvenient time. Of course no time is truly convenient. The terrible twos are when the frequency and intensity of the temper tantrum generally tends to increase.

Tips To Get Through The Terrible Twos and Tantrum Threes

Keep a journal. Write about every frustration, every tantrum, every humorous moment–yes, there will be many of each. Someday, when you have more energy, you may find you actually have a book. You might even want to consider two journals: one that is strictly your personal thoughts that no one will ever see until you write your book and the other for your child–a reflection of those early years as he/she matures. Older children love reading about themselves.

Do lots of outings and special activities at home. I know that sounds impossible with a two-year-old but persevere. Your outings might be for the location–zoo, butterfly pavilion, etc, or outings might have a specific purpose–find blue things, find flowers, find 3"s, or do story-time at the library.

Give your toddler a safe place to release their anger and emotion. Sometimes, letting it all out really does help them feel better rather than suppressing the frustrations and keeping the emotions bottled up.

Try your very best to remain calm. This is hard but any outwardly expressed anger or frustration will elevate the force of the tantrum. Pick up your child and hug them while whispering something interesting into their ear.

Remove the child from wherever it happens to be that the temper tantrum is taking place and tell them that they can only come back when they are finished and they are smiling. Once they do return, talk to them about what just went on. Try and find out what it was that set them off and how you both may prevent it from happening again in the future.

Simply ignore the temper tantrum if at all possible. Do not listen or react in any way while the child is screaming. This will help instil the understanding that the proper way to get your attention is to talk to you, not to scream at you.
