5 tips to deal with toddler tantrums!
When I was not a mom and used to see those toddlers rolling on the floor of the malls for one thing or the other, I used to pity their parents. But now I can understand their conditions better 😉 Sometimes toddlers give us really tough time handling them. Here are the five tips which would help handle the situation: 1) DISTRACT. Babies/toddler mostly have very short span of attention, it is very easy to deviate their minds. So try distract his mind and deviate it to something else. 2) IGNORE. Ignoring sometimes is the best of options available to us. Don’t react, just ignore. He would perform his tantrum dance, get tired and at the end will go back to his normal self. Why would he continue his tantrum, if he knows no one is really caring for it? 😛 3) ENGAGE. If you are going to supermarket, carry his favourite toys or candies etc and let him be engaged in it. 4) KEEP THINGS OUT OF SIGHT. If you know that your toddle will ask for a particular thing he gets to see, try to keep those things out of his sight to avoid his unnecessary tantrum. For eg, if you know he will ask to switch on a laptop or iPad when he gets to see that, just keep them at that place which is not visible to him. 5) NO MEANS NO. Don’t ever change your NO to YES. Kids know that with little tantrum they can get what they want, so they act that way deliberately. When you say “no” to something it shouldn’t be “yes” just because he is acting that way.
