10 quick ways to manage tantrums with positive parenting

There can be many reasons why children throw tantrums, but some of the most common ones include feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, wanting attention, or needing something they can’t have. 

Children might also throw tantrums as a way to express their feelings or to get what they want. Tantrums can be very frustrating for parents, but it’s important to remember that they’re usually a sign that the child is feeling overwhelmed or frustrated. 

Try to stay calm and understanding, and avoid reacting angrily or punitively. Instead, try to help the child calm down and figure out what’s wrong.

10 Quick Tips to navigate your Childs tantrums

1. Try to stay calm

If you lose your cool, it will only make the situation worse.

2. Ignore the behavior if it’s minor

Sometimes kids throw tantrums to get attention, and if you ignore them, they may stop.

3. Set reasonable limits

If your child is throwing a tantrum because they want something they can’t have, explain why they can’t have it and set a limit.

4. Distract them with something else 

If your child is throwing a tantrum because they’re bored or frustrated, try to distract them with something else.

5. Remove them from the situation

If the tantrum is getting out of control, remove your child from the situation until they calm down.

6. Let them express their feelings

Sometimes children just need to express their feelings, even if that means throwing a tantrum.

7. Help them deal with their emotions

If your child is throwing a tantrum because they’re angry or sad, help them deal with those emotions.

If your child behaves well, reward them with a special treat or positive attention.

9. Talk to them about their feelings

Talk to your child about why they’re throwing a tantrum and help them understand their feelings.
