Have you witnessed a temper tantrum? When a temper tantrum starts, it’s too late to stop it!
Let’s be real. Dealing with a tantrum in the middle of the grocery is never easy. Remember the last time your child had a temper tantrum. Was your stress level high? Did you feel helpless?
Most parents I talk to agree that temper tantrums happen mainly when a child is told “NO.” So, what’s a parent to do?
Here are five brain-based tools that my clients have used to stop temper tantrums,.
- Emotion regulation
- Helping child know their triggers
- Model the behavior that is expected
- Helping child put feelings to their words
