Nothing is worse than when your child hits that lovely age of three (forget terrible twos, people - it’s terrifying threes!) and they begin to throw tantrums that have you believing that they have been possessed by some otherworldly being. And that's why you need some ways to curb temper tantrums.

As you watch your child wondering if their head is going to rotate or not, you may be thinking to yourself, β€œWho is this and how can I make it stop?” Most parents will resort immediately to bribery. Now I am not completely opposed to bribery, but I do not use this as my go to. It doesn’t teach your child that there is a negative consequence for their action, only rewards. I don’t know about you, but my boss would not give me a tasty sucker if I threw my report around the room because he asked me to re-do it.

Here are 4 ways to curb temper tantrums. You can tweak them to fit the needs of your child because every child is sensitive to a different degree. Use your judgment and go from there!

1. Leave the Area

If you are in a restaurant, a store, a park, etc, leave the area. Yes, you may desperately need the milk, and leaving the store is not the easiest. It will teach your child that you mean it. If they are screaming because they want a candy or to play on a certain toy, you remove that option from them. Then when they calm down, you explain that they did not get to have that choice to use or get whatever the desired thing was due to how they behaved. Then explain what the good behavior would look like. This is one of the best ways to curb temper tantrums.
