Imagine this scenario: You are at the supermarket and your little one tugs at your hand asking if she can have the bar of chocolate at the far right stand of the store. You say no only to see that your child starts crying inconsolably, lying on the floor and throwing her arms and legs. .

Temper tantrums are an inevitable part of every parent’s life. In fact, raising children can become difficult at times when the adorable little ones throw long tantrums that can have parents at their wits end.

According to an article published in familyshare.com, some suggestions or ways to prevent temper tantrums include:

  • Creating a diversion by offering a ‘bribe’ (a sweet, maybe) or presenting another source of entertainment so the child forgets his temper.
  • Warn the child of consequences to his temper tantrum.
  • Sometimes children throw tantrums because they need physical touch.So holding them might be a good option.
  • Isolating your child might be a good way to prevent temper tantrums.

WebMD says some children are more prone to tantrums, particularly kids who are intense, hyperactive, or moody or those who don’t adapt well to new environments.
