Tantrums are hard not only for the child who’s having one, but also for the adult who’s supporting them. In this session, I cover what tantrums are, some good things about them (yes, they exist!), and what to do “in the moment.”
Note that I do not suggest asking kids to “use their words.” When little kids are really upset, they’re using a part of their brain that’s in fight-or-flight mode. Adult-style communication is simply not achievable for them when they’re dysregulated. Once they’re calm again, then their words are more readily available to them. This session offers some ideas of what you can do instead.
Note: this session does not have subtitles (coming soon).
