Temper tantrums are sudden outbursts of anger or frustration. They are a way children communicate strong emotions before being able to express them in socially acceptable ways. They can be physical or verbal and are part of a child’s normal development. They occur equally in boys and girls. 

Signs of a temper tantrum:

  • Kicking
  • Screaming
  • Crying
  • Biting others
  • Hitting
  • Pinching
  • Whining
  • Making the body tense and rigid
  • Flailing arms and legs

Even though temper tantrums are part of normal development, they can be frustrating and overwhelming for parents and children. Tantrums become easily treatable when given proven tools. We, at Healthy Connections, believe that parents are instrumental in the wellbeing of the family. The earlier you equip yourself to handle your child’s temper outburst, the easier it will be for you, and the better it is for your child.
