Children should not be allowed to have temper tantrums.
A tantrum is a display of impatience or dissatisfaction because they did not get their way.
The first time a child throws a tantrum should also be the last time.
Short of physical abuse, there are several ways to stop a tantrum:
- Ignore it. A tantrum needs an audience.
- With eyes of steel and a face set in cement, tell the child to stop it. You may have to say it more than once.
- Tell the child that you will take pleasures away.
- Make the child sit down or go to bed until the tantrum stops
#1 worked for me. It happened once, then never again.
If none of these work, hopefully, you’ll find something that will.
Children must learn to be patient. They must learn that they will not always get their way.
