3 Year Old Tantrums – 3 Simple Tips to Prevent a Meltdown

When your child hits the age of three, they’re trying to assert more of their independence than when they were two-years-old.  As a parent, it can be extremely difficult and frustrating to want to help a child, only to be told, “No”. And, when a parent tries to help anyway, a meltdown can ensue. What can you do to keep 3 year old tantrums from taking place? Keep in mind that your child’s communication skills are much better at this age. They can verbalize more of what they want and need, which can lead to more arguments with their parents and causing a three-year-old tantrum. You already know that, at this age, children are exploring their independence. They are always looking to do things without their parents’ help, and when your busy schedule is unable to afford the additional 10 to 15 minutes, it can set off a three year […]

My 4 Helpful Tips Parents Can Use To Stop 1 Year Old Tantrums

The most precious years of a child’s life are their toddler years. After all, they learn to walk and talk and learn all they can about the world around them. As a parent, you are amazed by all the things your child can do or try to do at this point. Of course, with all the cute things a toddler does, there are some not so cute things. One such thing is the 1 year old tantrums they can throw with no notice.  Here are some instances in which a one-year-old will start throwing a temper tantrum: 1 – Your child is cranky and doesn’t want to take a nap or is unable to take a nap. 2 – Your toddler is pitching a fit because you are dropping them off at daycare when they’d rather be with you. 3 – Your toddler is having a grand old time outside and doesn’t want to […]

Anger Management For Children Involves Turning Negative Attention Into Positive Attention

Is your child out of control? Does he/she scream, kick, hit and/or bite if they don’t get what they want or their way? If so, then you’ve got a brat you have to deal with. This temper tantrum usually happens when you’ve rarely told the child “NO” and they always gotten their way. Do you need some anger management for children to help you regain control over them?   Has Your Child’s Demeanor Suddenly Changed If your child is suddenly angry, moody or crabby, it could be something in the environment that changed. Do you and your spouse constantly argue? Even when you don’t fight in front of the children, they sense the tension. Kids can pick up on their parents’ vibes. Did something happen that caused the behavior? Did the child get any breakfast? Is the child having a difficult time in school? Are they being bullied? There are so many reasons why […]

Talking to Toddlers Review – Now When I Talk, My Toddler Actually Listens!

I thought I was skilled in handling preschoolers, but I never considered language techniques as a means of modifying behavior. Chris Thompson’s Talking to Toddlers: Dealing with the terrible twos and beyond has opened up a new avenue of thought for me and for anyone who is trying to change the moods of stubborn toddlers. If you’re still struggling at mealtimes, their bedtime or just listening to you, then please continue to read. At first I was skeptical because what has this “NLP” got to do with handling a two-year-old? Turns out it is pretty relevant after all. Chris uses language techniques to help toddlers behave better. He doesn’t hypnotize them at all; he just uses their fertile little minds as a growing field in which to seed behavior suggestions.  He mixes what he knows about hypnosis with the 15 years he spent studying language techniques to come up with a pretty unique approach to parenting. What […]
