Stopping Toddler Temper Tantrums Before They Start

By lk4rt December 11, 2017 15 month old baby temper tantrums

If you are the parent or caregiver of a one to three year old child, you know how frustrating it can be dealing with a toddler’s temper tantrums. Venturing out is usually a favorite pastime for many toddlers in their early stages of development. Children of this age range love to explore the  environment they live in. Communication through the spoken language is being developed, but many toddlers will tend to use other forms of communication that can be less pleasant to endure. This is because, quite often, a toddler can become frustrated, or displeased with a new environment, or with a particular situation that arises but the toddler is not successfully able to do communicate his / her feelings through words or normal hand gestures. This can result in the toddler going into a wild and unrelenting temper tantrum.

While it may seem that the frequency of a toddler’s temper tantrum is purely random, many toddler meltdowns can be linked to a feeling of insecurity, a lack of sleep, or they are simply hungry. Many tantrums can be avoided by paying attention to the basic needs of a child.

Happy Routine – Happy Toddler

Toddlers do best when they are on a well-followed schedule. Small children look forward to their routine because they like to know what to expect. Unexpected surprises can wreck havoc on a toddler. Having a routine provides a much needed sense of security for most children. So it comes as no surprise that toddler temper tantrums can be caused by extreme deviations from what they are accustomed to doing in their daily schedule. By following a consistent routine on a daily basis, toddler frustrations can be limited and some tantrums may even be avoided.

Getting ample amounts of sleep is very important for a growing toddler and having a set bedtime is even more important. Toddlers and small children need to have a scheduled bedtime in the evening that allows them to get at least eight hours of sleep. Naps during the day can also greatly benefit small children and toddlers as well. Eye rubbing, whining, and yawning throughout the day are usually helpful indicators that your child is experiencing varying levels of fatigue. When these minor signs first make their appearance, children should be encouraged to take a nap. An unexpected tantrum can occur when a child is experiencing major levels of fatigue so it is best to pay attention to the smaller warning signs of fatigue to help avoid an unnecessary tantrum.

Some tantrums can be avoided by making sure toddlers are fed when they are hungry. A hungry child will usually experience more challenges with maintaining attentiveness and / or self control than one who is kept well fed. It is important for toddlers to have three meals and two or more snacks every day. This can be much easier to accomplish for caregivers by having nutritious snacks available during the day. Raisins, crackers, or apple slices can make for a great snack on the go and can also mean the difference between a child kicking and screaming in a shopping mall versus waiting patiently while clothes are being purchased.

For those serious about taking control of your out of control toddler.

If you really want to stop your toddler’s temper tantrums, I highly recommend you check out my review of the audio course “Dealing with the Terrible Twos”. It will teach you everything you need to know to stop those awful temper tantrums once and for all.

In short, most toddler temper tantrums can be prevented or avoided by being more attentive to a child’s needs. Following a schedule, enforcing bedtimes, encouraging nap times, and providing meals and snacks for toddlers can help reduce tantrums caused by insecurity, tiredness, and hunger.

Toddlers Throwing Temper Tantrums Can Make You CRAZY!
Learn How To Stop Those Nasty Tantrums

If you have ever been in a restaurant, department store or other public place when a toddler throws a massive temper tantrum, you know how embarrassing it can be. The scornful looks of other parents as your toddler goes into a fit of hysterics is almost too much to bear.

But it is even more embarrassing when the child that is throwing the temper tantrum is your own.

And having a child that throws a temper tantrum almost every time he / she is in public is even worse. But before you throw you throw in the towel, do not give up hope just yet. With the right tools, you can get your toddler’s temper tantrums under control before they get to a point of no return.

Consistency – The Cardinal Rule of Child Discipline

First and foremost, when dealing with your child – BE CONSISTENT. Children naturally want to test the boundaries of their parents’ guidance. If you give your child a different reaction when faced with the same repeated situation, toddlers become confused and continue to escalate the incidence of toddler temper tantrums. With that being said, it really can be overwhelmingly tempting to give in to your toddler’s tantrum in order to get your toddler from acting out. Ultimately in the long run, for the betterment of your toddler’s mental and emotional development, it is much better to let your toddler know in no uncertain terms that unacceptable behavior will not be tolerated. Dealing with your toddler’s temper tantrums in this way takes time and patience, but better behavior in the long run is the inevitable and much more desirable result. Most parents who insist they have tried a proven parenting technique and it hasn’t worked usually have failed because they did not apply that technique in a consistent and unyielding manner.

Environment Change Can Lead To Change For The Better

More often than not, a specific item, situation or point of conflict between a toddler and parent will trigger a toddler’s temper tantrum. Removing your toddler from the environment that is causing the issue can help to reduce the intensity of the tantrum. However, if you are in the middle of shopping or attending a social function, having to do this can be disheartening and somewhat annoying. But, like all aspects of parenting, discipline is an investment that will pay back dividends later even if it means going through some moments of inconvenience. If your toddler tends to throw temper tantrums quite often, it may be best to schedule only short outings until you and your toddler get the situation better under control. It can also be helpful to anticipate a troublesome situation and eliminate it beforehand.

If you are truly serious about taking control of your out of control toddler.

Use Time Outs Effectively

With so much research indicating that spanking is harmful to your toddler, time outs have become the discipline method of choice. However, they are actually often misunderstood and misused. The biggest thing to remember with toddlers is that they like to see a big splash when they misbehave. In other words, your reaction is the most important pay off that toddler temper tantrums bring to your child. Take away the pay off. The most effective time out is given without a lot of dialogue and interaction between parent and child. Explain the rules in a simple, understandable way. If your child gets out of their time out spot (and they will!), place them back in firmly, showing as little emotion as possible. After a week or two, they will have the drill down and it will be much easier. After they time has been served, you can give hugs and discuss why the behavior was unacceptable.

Almost Everything You Know About Toddler Temper Tantrums Is Wrong!

Preventing Toddler Temper Tantrums – What You Need To Know

Just about every parent incessantly dreads “the terrible twos” – that infamous period of time where a toddler is known to go on a rampage sometime around the age of two. Although it may not seem possible, excessive toddler temper tantrums can be circumvented. The process to accomplish this takes a great deal of consistency and patience, however transforming the terrible twos into the terrific twos is not only possible but highly feasible.

First off, you must make sure that you are setting an exemplary example for your toddler. Some parents think that a toddler is too young to be able to learn anything from watching you, but this simply is not true. There is much that your toddler can and will learn just from observing your day to day actions and behaviors. Whenever you are interacting with your toddler, be sure to always remain calm and in complete control of your emotions.

Staying in control means avoiding being out of control

Experiencing a feeling of being out of control usually is the origin of most toddler temper tantrums. One of the best ways to help your toddler learn self control is to actively involve your toddler in basic decision making.

For example, when it is time for playtime, you can ask your toddler if he / she would rather play with the toy truck or the toy boat. Allowing your toddler to participate in making these kind of decisions will help to decrease your toddler’s sense of loss of control. Many parents are not even aware that their toddler is experiencing these feelings which is why it is important to take action before an invisible situation becomes a tangible problem.

Small warnings for changes in routine go a long way

Like many adults, toddlers do not generally welcome a change in their routine. Dramatic, immediate changes in a toddlers life can easily lead to unexpected and unwelcome toddler temper tantrums. Giving a simple warning ahead of a routine change can usually ward off a temper tantrum for a toddler. For example, suddenly having to leave the home of a favorite relative can be somewhat traumatic for a toddler. An easy way to get your toddler ready for leaving is to warn them ahead of time that your family will be leaving the  relative’s home. The most common warning is a 5 minute warning. This helps the toddler to emotionally prepare for having to leave and prepares them for saying goodbye when it is truly time to leave.

Remain consistent in as many activities, habits, and routines as you possibly can. Establishing a regular eating and sleeping routine can prevent many toddler temper tantrums, since it is usually tired, hungry, and cranky toddlers that have the most tantrums. Consistency is your friend in the realm of parenting, especially when you are dealing with toddlers.

It will very likely be difficult to stay calm when your toddler is having a tantrum, but do not become hysterical when it occurs. Many tantrums can be avoided, but unfortunately, tantrums are simply part of being a toddler in some cases. Staying calm will lessen the length and severity of the tantrums that do occur.

Deal With Toddler Temper Tantrums

By lk4rt December 11, 2017 15 month old baby temper tantrums

Toddlers have been known to master a different form of communication at some point between the ages of one and three years old. This troublesome communication style has been known to get the attention of not only their parents, but the neighbors, everyone in the grocery store, and even the obnoxious kid down the street (if in earshot).

You probably already guessed it – it is called the temper tantrum.

Although there are many variations of the temper tantrum there are really two main types – the frustration tantrum and the manipulation tantrum.

Ideas For Ending Temper Tantrums Before They Get Too Out Of Control

When a toddler gets frustrated, he or she lacks the verbal skills to express those feelings usually resulting in an uncontrolled emotional outburst. Getting your toddler to calm down can be a much easier thing to do if you follow these helpful tips:

  • Hold your toddler. The toddler can’t talk his way out of the problem. Being held lets him know that someone is there for him.
  • Learn to identify what triggers your toddler’s tantrums. Does he or she get cranky during a visit to the market? Be prepared. Bring along a favorite toy or a treat. Don’t go shopping when the toddler is tired.
  • VERBALIZE your toddler’s feelings. If he’s upset because you’re shopping and won’t buy him a toy, put it into words for him. Get down to the toddler’s level and say, “You want that ball and you’re upset because you can’t have it.” Knowing his feelings are understood will calm the toddler down.
  • Use a distraction to lessen the intensity of the tantrum. Give him a favorite toy. Ask him to color a picture. Take him somewhere else, like the garden, where you can show him the flowers. Any distraction should abate the tantrum.
  • Ask your toddler what emotions they are feeling. He may have difficulty verbalizing his frustration, but it will teach him to use words rather than tantrums when angry.
  • Regardless of what your toddler is doing – REMAIN CALM! If the toddler is out-of-control, he needs you to be in control. If he’s throwing a tantrum in public, take him to a quiet place. Talk to him calmly.

Be aware that even a toddler is smart enough to know your trigger points. A tantrum-throwing toddler does not need a parent with a short fuse. Be aware what kind of behavior causes you to lose it. If necessary, get professional help. If your toddler is throwing a fit in an effort to manipulate you, it’s important that you remain in control.

  • If possible, ignore the tantrum. Once your toddler realizes who’s in control, the tantrum will stop.
  • Call for a time out. If you’re outside, take the child to the car. At home, have a “time out” place. This will give the toddler a chance to calm down.

If you really want to stop your toddlers temper tantrums, I highly recommend you check out my review of the audio course “Dealing with the Terrible Twos” here. It will teach you everything you need to know to stop those awful temper tantrums for good.

Most importantly, recognize that your toddler’s tantrums are actually a good thing. He or she is learning to deal with frustration, which is an important skill as the toddler matures into an adult. In a world where no one always gets what he or she wants, knowing how to deal with frustration is crucial.

Dealing with the Terrible Twos – Product Review – A Must Have For Parents With Young Children

By lk4rt December 11, 2017 15 month old baby temper tantrums

Hello everyone!

My name is Sarah Shane and I just wanted to let everyone know about my story on how I was able to get my amazing 2 year old, who was out of control, back under control. Now, don’t get my wrong. Bryan, my little boy, was pretty quiet and well behaved all the way up until about his second birthday. I was really thankful that he would let me sleep through most of the night while all my other friends who had small children were constantly telling me about how little sleep they were getting because their babies would cry all night long.

Great times, but then he got a little bit older…

After Bryan’s second birthday is when I really started to notice his temper tantrums. The moment the word, “No” left my lips is when his temper tantrums would really start. Sadly, raising my voice during those times only made the tantrums worse. It seemed that my quiet little angel had changed overnight into something totally different from what he had been before.

I went through book, after book, after book trying to find a solution

During a moment of desperation, I went out and bought every early childhood development book that I could get my hands on in attempt to find a solution to my problem. While all of them had pieces of information I needed, none of them provided all the pieces I needed to solve the puzzle.

Then my friend recommended an audio course that she had found very helpful

talkingtotoddlerscovers_400My friend already had two kids aged 4 and 6 so she had already gone through the “terrible twos” as many would call it. She suggested I try this audio course called “Dealing with the Terrible Twos“. I had never tried any audio courses before so it was definitely a nice change in pace.

I bought the course because of her recommendation. Simply put, I am so glad I listened! The course taught me everything I needed to know to psychologically control my out of control toddler. Some of the techniques they teach are so clever that your child will give into every one of your demands…and without any resistance. The amount of peace this course has given me is worth the price alone.

I highly recommend you try “Dealing with the Terrible Twos” here if you want to stop your toddlers temper tantrums for good. It also teaches you some really cool control techniques that you can use all the way up until age 8.

Effectively Dealing With Toddler Temper Tantrums

Children who are between the ages of one and five present unique challenges to most parents because those are the most formative years in a child’s life. Getting toddler temper tantrums under control can be rather difficult, but it must be done in order to avoid long term negative affects on a child’s developmental well-being.

But the big question remainsWhat do you do to effectively deal with a child’s temper tantrums?

First, parents must understand two basic and important truths. The first truth is that toddler temper tantrums are the result of a natural need to rebel that almost every young child has.

In general, children want to have things their own way. This is also true of many adults, but while most adults usually learn that it is not always possible to have their own way all of the time, children sometimes think all they have to do to get their own way is to put on a strong display of emotion accompanied by loud sounds, and thrashing around of their tiny bodies.

Simply put, to get what they want, children will sometimes resort to throwing a full blown temper tantrum.

Temper Tantrums are more than just a display of emotion…

The second thing to know is that children learn through a process of cause and effect. For example, if playing on the stairs causes junior to fall down and hurt himself, after one or two tumbles he will stop playing on the stairs. He learns to continue behavior based on positive results while discontinuing that which yields negative results. Knowing these two things lays the ground work for eliminating toddler temper tantrums.

When your child throws a fit he is more or less demanding he get his own way. Whether is in the form of screaming when you put him down for bed or laying on the floor crying because he can’t have a cookie, junior is telling you he wants to be in charge. The only way to effectively deal with this is to never, ever give in to the child’s demands. As soon as you do, you have given him positive results which will encourage this behavior to continue.

If you really want to stop your toddlers temper tantrums, I highly recommend you check out my review of the audio course “Dealing with the Terrible Twos” here. It will teach you everything you need to know to stop those awful temper tantrums for good.

Here is how you stop a temper tantrum.

You stop toddler temper tantrums be refusing to give in. So find a place in your home where you can put the child, close the door, and let him scream until he has no voice left.
