Motherhood simply wouldn’t be complete without years spent wading through temper tantrums. Toddlers and young children bring us so much joy, lighting up our lives with the intensity of their fresh palette of emotions. The smiles that radiate from elated faces. The loving embrace of a child who couldn’t wait to see you again. However, this intensity also leads to our little ones landing in emotionally explosive situations that they (and often, we) feel helpless to diffuse.
Have you experienced the force of your child’s emotions in a temper tantrum? Read the rest of this post, including effective tips for taming temper tantrums, over on Green Moms Collective.
If you’d like to learn a bit more about what you can do to keep those tantrums from happening in the first place, check out this recent post on 6 Tools for Preventing Temper Tantrums.
