Four Tantrum Tips for Surviving Mommy Hood  #HuggiesLatino disclosure

Five Tantrum Tips for Surviving Mommy Hood  #HuggiesLatino

As a parent I have seen my fair share of tantrums. My youngest son has taken the reins as a tantrum thrower.  At two he has developed the idea that screaming, hitting and flailing his body will get him what he wants.  I have vented, researched and tried just about everything to get my persistent “it’s my way” boy to chill out.

I am thrilled that we have made great strides in taking his tantrums down a notch.  I have also learned that the tantrums my children display are actually traits they will carry that will help define them as strong leaders and determined adults.  Traits I would not want to break.

Five Tantrum Tips for Surviving Mommy Hood

Watch for Triggers
What sets your little one off?  Is he not a sharer?  Does he want candy every time you hit the checkout aisle?  Does he get upset when it is time to leave?  Know what his triggers are and play them to your advantage.My son is a messy marvin and will throw a huge fit every time we need to clean up. I have started making strides in teaching him to clean.  I use Huggies® Natural Care Wipes with Triple Clean layers and not only use them to clean him up but also to have him help me clean.  After a meal, I give him a wipe to clean up his space.  If he does his clean up duty he gets to watch one of his favorite cartoons or gets 15 minutes to play a game on the iPad.

Pick your Battles

As a parent you always want to stick to your guns and be authoritative when the fussiness starts.  You should also remember your child is simply a child. Stay calm, if they are having a bad day maybe a tantrum is needed.  Before you stop the tantrum, let them get it all out.  We all need a good cry every now and then.

Divert, Divert, Divert!

They have a short attention span, use it to your advantage.  I have a box of busy items, that I hide away and save for moments of frustration and to take his mind off of what he was frustrated about.

Stay Positive

When you know what sets your child off it is easier to keep the day flowing with positive reinforcement.

Praise Good Behavior

When we conquered the playground and left buckled up ready to go home without incident, I felt a huge sense of relief.  I was so happy that my little guy was on his best behavior and made sure to tell him how proud I was of him.  We then went home and told dad all about his great behavior and I watched my two year old smile and dance around even proud of himself.Huggies® Natural Care Wipes with Triple Clean layers
