Well, I started this post looking for good videos on terrible twos temper tantrums.
I quickly developed a headache from listening to and watching all the crying and temper tantrums. It’s not pretty…and for all you parents with children somewhere in the spectrum of terrible twos who deal with temper tantrums regularly, probably the last thing you want to see is more toddlers balling their eyes out, screaming with snot running down their faces. The good news is, terrible twos don’t last forever and neither do the temper tantrums (hopefully). In the meantime, these videos offer some constructive ideas on how to deal with the temper tantrums.
Here’s one on terrible twos temper tantrums from The Health Science Channel (click here for another video on dealing with temper tantrums at their website). Some nice advice.
