Zach is now 1 and a half years old and it seems as if he has reached temper-tantrum mode and refuses to escape it. He has the same temper-tantrums every day, over the same things and situations. My biggest concern is when he wants to do or have something that is extremely dangerous. For example, wanting the pair of scissors on the desk, running outside, or wanting to climb the table. Even after falling off of the table, he will still want to get back onto it! I’m seriously afraid he’s going to break a bone or worse.
Zach’s temper-tantrums are driving me crazy, mostly because I don’t know what to DO when he has one! What I usually do is take him away from the situation and have him sit until he calms down. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn’t. I’ve tried reading Dr. Harvey’s “Happiest Toddler On The Block”, but it hasn’t been working for us.
So moms, how do you handle temper tantrums? Are there any methods that work for you over others? Any tips are much-appreciated!
