Step 1: Distract the child
Distract the child from whatever’s causing the frustration. Draw the child’s attention to anything else – a toy, a book, or activity.
Step 2: Stay calm
Remain calm and collected. Show the child you have control of the situation.
How To Deal With a Toddler's Temper Tantrum:
Step 3: Talk to the child
Discuss the situation with the child. Show them you understand why they are upset.
Step 4: Remove the child
Remove the child from the scene, whether it’s a family gathering, a shopping mall, or grocery store. Pick up the child and physically remove them to a different surrounding.
Reserve a time-out area in your home where the child will go to calm down.
Step 5: Be consistent
Always be consistent with your actions. Never give in to an unruly child, or your child will soon rule your home.
