Tantruming Toddler Techniques
I’ll cut right to the chase, my son has started the ‘terrible twos’ early. The past week has been littered with unexplained tantruming. It seems that one minute he is the charming and polite boy I am use to. Then suddenly he will transform into a creature that starts hitting, screaming and rolling around. So, I have found varying techniques to deal with a tantrum at home, ranging from ignoring, laughing or using the step. However, the problem occurs when these tantrums occur outside the home. Now have you experienced the complete meltdown of a toddler whilst at the park or shopping? Have a little read of this infographic.
My personal favourite is the rugby ball, since I am a glasses wearer. What is your favourite? Would you add any others? If so, let me know in the comments below. Why not share it with your friends and see what they think? How’s your back to school routine coming along? I’m still working on dealing with back to school blues, see my tips here.
As always a little Bible passage I’ll be trying to recall this week is from Colossians 3:21 The Message version:
‘Parents, don’t come down too hard on your children or you’ll crush their spirits.’
Disclaimer: No children were harmed in the making of this infographic. A lot of laughter, but no damage to the children. The adults however, had some mild discomfort from lifting.
