Health Tip: Stop Toddler Tantrums Before They Start
(HealthDay News) -- It's usually tough to stop a toddler's tantrum once it starts, so the Nemours Foundation suggests how to avoid one altogether:
Give your child enough attention, especially when the child is exhibiting good behavior.
Let your toddler have control over small decisions, such as what to eat or wear.
Choose your battles; fighting over a small thing may not be worth it.
If there is something your child can't have, keep it out of sight.
Offer your child toys and challenges that are age-appropriate, avoiding frustration.
Don't push your child beyond his or her limits.
