Do you ever find yourself embarrassed, unsure on how to deal with your child’s tantrum in public? You are not alone!
Parenting can be a challenging job, but with a few simple methods, you can help your child to better regulate their emotions and understand how to properly express and manage their feelings.
Here are some helpful strategies to help parents manage their child’s tantrum in public-
1. Address the tantrum without yelling or punitive action– It is important to remind your child to use their words if they become overwhelmed and upset. A simple and gentle “We don’t throw tantrums. Let’s talk about why you are feeling upset,” can be a great way to redirect the behavior.
2. Pay attention to your emotions– In the face of a tantrum, it is important for parents to remain calm and collected. If parents react with anger and show similar emotions to the child, it can unintentionally teach the child that these emotions are acceptable.
3. Offer support– During a tantrum, expressing empathy and providing comfort can go a long way. By simply saying, “I understand why you are feeling upset. Maybe you need help to calm down,” parents can help guide their child to a more calm and composed state.
4. Distract– Use simple distraction strategies to help your child manage their emotions. Sometimes, a change of scenery or a new activity is enough to help redirect the focus and redirect the tantrum.
