Still on the tantrum and meltdown topic, I found this interesting way of dealing with them: Make a Tantrum Kit!
It’s a great way to change your child’s focus from having a meltdown. It redirects all that strong emotions into something that is more creative… and quieter! Let me know how it works for your kid!
#Toddler tantrums are never fun. Tough for parents, the babe and all those around, they can strike at almost any time and for seemingly almost any reason. Sometimes the best defense is a good offense, so when those tantrums hit, have at the ready a box full of easy activities to entertain and distract. If one doesn’t work, just move on to the next until (hopefully) you find one to quiet the storm. Warning: Some of these activities use small objects that could be choking hazards. Please supervise your child at all times.
