I think each parent has different views and we should respect them. The age and developmental stage your child is at should depend on the route you take on how to deal with tantrums. With that said, we all do things differently.. good luck mamas.
Most of my 18m olds tantrums have always been because she wants to be carried around ALL.THE.TIME and sometimes I have to put her down (you know, to take something out of the oven or wipe my own butt 🙄) so usually I just let her cry a few minutes and repeat “mummy will pick you up in a minute when she’s done” and pick her back up and cuddle until she’s calm. I try to prevent tantrums by giving lots of warnings of what we are going to do, etc. The other ones are teeth brushing/hair brushing which are necessary evils, so I try to be quick and let the tantrum happen while I’m doing it. I’m pro letting children have opinions and feelings but also you can’t let their teeth rot or hold them when it’s unsafe/unsanitary 🤷♀️ I probably let my kid get away with too much and I’m really not sorry about that.
I ignore tantrums
My 14 month old is starting to get into it kinda, I just let her deal with it, thankfully she usually does it at home lol. She's 14 months so me getting mad at her isn't going to help the situation and probably make it worse we try to distract her by tickling her lol or taking her out front to walk usually helps her as she probably just wants to do something. She doesn't understand if I tell her calm down yet or to talk through it yet.
Taking stuff away and time out my daughter tantrum are really bad more so in public
