Health Tip: Are Your Child's Tantrums Dangerous?
(HealthDay News) -- Parents often think of a child's tantrum as a typical part of growing up. But sometimes there are warning signs that should prompt a call to the pediatrician.
The Cleveland Clinic mentions these examples:

Tantrums that include the child causing self-harm, or harm to others or property.
Tantrums that include holding one's breath, particularly if the child faints.
Tantrums that are followed by anxiety, headache or stomach ache.
