Head off tantrums before they start
You're in the checkout line at the grocery store with your two-year-old in the cart. His little face is right next to all the chocolate candy bars. There are two people ahead of you in line and three behind. The inevitable occurs. Your son asks sweetly for a chocolate. You say no—just as sweetly. Then, in under three seconds your boy's face twists into an expression of murderous rage and blood-curdling screams blast throughout the store.
Of all the behavioral problems parents have to face, tantrums may be the most upsetting—especially when these meltdowns occur in public. At these moments you can feel embarrassed and ashamed—you're on stage in the bright lights. You feel like a bad parent and like you've done something wrong, though you're not exactly sure just what your mistake was. But the looks on the faces of the other people around you—and the look on your own child's face—send an unmistakable message to you that you have messed up big time.
There's bad news and good news here. The bad news is that you cannot wish tantrums away and, yes, your kids are probably going to embarrass you in public on any number of occasions. That's, unfortunately, part of parenting.
The good news is this: If you learn how to think about tantrums correctly and realistically, and if you learn how to handle these outbursts calmly and decisively, you can train most kids to outgrow this obnoxious phase of their existence. Some children may take a few days, some a few months, and others may still blow up from time to time, but at a rate that is way less than the tantrum frequency they started at.
Click here to find out how preparation, clear thinking, and decisive action can head off most tantrums before they ever start.
