Overcoming Toddler Tantrums and Meltdowns

Eliminate frustration beyond your toddler's limits:

Challenges are necessary for children to develop, but try to step in before a challenge becomes a frustration. Guide gently, but don’t take over. For instance, discreetly turn the puzzle piece over so he can put it in by himself. When you sense your tot is reaching the brink, create a diversion towards a calming, soothing activity – a different place, a toy, a hug, a story, a song or perhaps a snack.

Look for Triggers

Do tantrums seem to happen mostly when your tot is tired, hungry, rushed? Are there situations he finds difficult to handle such as playgroup, shopping or being strapped in a car seat? Keeping a tantrum diary might help you understand triggers. Try to think ahead and limit overwhelming situations. For instance, plan short shopping trips when he isn’t tired, take nutritious snacks and water whenever you go out, and don’t wait for difficult behaviour before you offer food or it can seem like a reward.
