Defusing Tantrums

Defusing Tantrums

Gretchen Rubin brings us a necessary list of tips to help us deal with those moments in life when our children decide they’ve had all they can stand, and they can’t stand any more.

The secret is to acknowledge the reality of children’s wishes. This sounds obvious, but think about how easy it is to deny their feelings: “You can’t possibly want another Lego set, you never play with the ones you have.” “That toy is just junk.” “You can’t be hungry, you just had dinner.” “Of course you want to go, you love going to Grandpa’s house.” “You’re not scared of clowns.”

I’m not saying YOUR kids have tantrums. Yours are probably perfect. But maybe you can pass this on.

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
