Temper Tantrum: One of the Most Common Behavioral Problem of Toddlers
Temper tantrums, which are more common in boys, single children, and spoiled children, can persist into preschool age if parents ignore them at the toddler stage. If this pattern persists, the child will require professional assistance from a the child guidance clinic.
The following are the best ways to deal with a toddler’s temper tantrums:
1.The best method to deal with the problem is to try to ignore it unless they are damaging themselves or others. Typically, a child will scream and beg for attention. When they notice that they are not receiving adequate reaction, they may decide to cease their actions.
2. If the child continues to cry and engages in aggressive behaviour such as kicking, biting, and so on, stop them immediately and remove them from the environment. Make it clear that injuring others is not a a good habit or pastime. The parents should not be excessively loud, as this may make the child feel more insecure.
4. Most of the time, creating a distractions will help to calm the tantrum. This could be some distracting objects or a distracting setting; nevertheless, make sure the distracting object or situation is safe. Provide them with a relaxing environment in which to work.
5. Beating or scolding the child is a terrible way to deal with temper tantrums since toddlers become obstinate and egoistic. They will be uneasy around their parents or caregiver. If things are getting out of hand, talk to the child about his or her naughty behaviour.
To those mothers, fathers, and caretakers who have a toddler with them, believe me when I say that handling them is not easy. However, if you learn the ways to deal with them, it becomes much easier.
