Ways To Care When The Child Shows Constant Tantrums
Suddenly, that baby who seemed so quiet and quiet a few months ago, screams, throws herself on the floor and causes the most different feelings in you, from shame to anger, to the desire to laugh. Dealing with tantrums is not easy, but it is inevitable. Here’s how to make it easier and know strategies to avoid the show.

1. How old is the tantrum?
In a poll conducted on the Crescer website, 63% of 158 participants said their children made more tantrums between 2 and 4 years. It is at this age that children test the boundaries of their parents and in the face of the frustration of a NO, they cry, they cheer, they scream, they throw themselves on the floor.

All this because they have not learned to deal with this sensation. But it can start already at 6 months and only finish at 8! Much depends on the type of creation that the family will give and so much on the personality of the child. If your child is over the age of 6 and still having constant tantrums, it is best to seek the help of a specialist.

It may be that he is suffering from some recent problem or event. Change of home, school, death of a loved one or pet, separation of parents and even lack of dialogue at home can delay the development of the child. That’s one way he can call for help. Separation from parents and even lack of dialogue at home can delay the development of the child.

2. Why does it happen?
This is because children are not yet mature enough to deal with a particular frustration and end up exploding. This explosion comes in the form of uncontrollable crying, screams and that intense movement difficult to contain.

In fact, in some situations, children are testing their parents’ limits to find out how far they can go. Other times, tantrums are just an unconscious request for help in dealing with a new feeling that is frustration.

3. Can you avoid it?
Yes, because the tantrum attack begins long before the screams and crying. It is a morning, a request that can not be fulfilled, a very busy place and full of people or sleep, tiredness etc. When the first signs come up, it is time to negotiate, taking into account the age of the child.

• Up to 2 years: If you see that the child will not hurt the child, in any situation, change the environment to distract her and propose a joke.

• Between 2 and 4 years old: did you go to the mall and your child figured you want a certain toy? Tell him to choose for the birthday or for the next festive date. You can also tell that one is very expensive and suggest a cheaper one.

If you can not buy it, you better tell the truth. When it’s time to go to the market, encourage your child to help you so that you do not get angry because you do not feel useful. Taking a product on the shelf, holding a lightweight bag, helping to observe prices are good tips.

ALWAYS: Do not forget that everything must be said in the language the child understands. To use “adult” tone is tiring, difficult and annoying. And of course, always talk to the child lowering up to her height.

4. How to deal with the attack?
Unfortunately, there is no infallible formula. It all depends on the child, the age and the situation. But some tips can help with this challenge. First of all, think about whether it’s worth fighting this battle with your son.

Is he really overreacting? Are you asking for something you already have, or are you angry, sleepy or hungry, too hot? Often, they need a quieter place to sleep or feed, or simply be.

• If the child is in a dangerous place, remove it immediately, regardless of how loud it is.

• Keep Calm. Do not forget that you serve as a role model for your child and the calmer you are, the faster the situation will resolve.

• Do not scream. As it is a blast from parents, there is no child to support it!

• Never, ever, hit your child.

• Turn the child’s focus off. Because she is nervous, avoid talking too much in time. Better talk less and act more. Up to 5 years old, the child can not concentrate on words for more than 30 seconds.

• When you realize that she has calmed down, give her a warm hug to show her that it’s okay!
