Clinical Psychologist for Nubabi, Claire Toi, shares the 3 most effective strategies in dealing with toddler tantrums.
Be aware of certain trigger situations; for some children this is the sweet stand at the supermarket tillpoint or having to leave a fun playdate
These situations can’t always be avoided, so be prepared to offer your little one some distraction, or use a count down or other cues that it’s time to go.
Offering choices where possible can be helpful too: “Do you want to say goodbye with a hug or a wave?” Giving your child behaviour options allows them to feel that they have some autonomy in the situation.”
