Keep a tantrum diary

Keeping a tantrum diary might help you understand triggers. Try to think ahead and limit overwhelming situations.

Help them do something

If they are doing something that you want them to stop, don’t just say ‘no’. Help them to do something different.

Time Out

Take a time-out. If you’re worked up, you’re only going to work up your child
