How is everyone managing 2 year old tantrums? Like clockwork, our 2 year old has started throwing all out, breakdown fits. We’re trying time out. Anyone else struggling?
I am on that same struggle with my daughter. You tell her no and she starts screaming and hitting and throwing things. I don’t know what to do either.
We also would say. Ok you’re not ok to be around other people so you go take a time away and come back when you think you’re ready. We were wanting to teach them self regulation. We didn’t time it but I wanted them to learn to calm faster.
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 laugh at the kitchen and butt comment bc that too happens with me. I have twins so monkey see monkey do
