Being on the other side of tantrum-territory, I suppose it could seem easy to say, "Ride out the storm. Be there. Be compassionate." Yep, way too easy. So I've compiled a group of fabulous posts about parenting through tantrums. When we change how we view tantrums, we're much more equipped to help our child learn how to navigate the big feelings that lead to them!
I adore this post by Patty Wipfler, that appeared in mothering. She recommends viewing tantrums as an "emotional hiccup". I rather like that, don't you?
Is there any other better antidote to emotions spiraling out of control than a peaceful corner? That is one of the strategies advocated by Shawn at Awesomely Awake via The Golden Gleam!
