Many parents have to deal with changes in their children’s behavior when they reach two years of age. It is very common for tantrums to occur at this age. Parents sometimes don’t know how to handle this situation correctly. Understanding what children want is complicated since their wishes frequently change; this stage is known as babies’ adolescence.
Tantrums are completely normal at this age. Depending on how parents handle this situation with their children, it will be defined how children’s behavior will be when facing different situations in adulthood.
Adults must not despair when these situations arise. They must understand that children at this age do not have the mental capacity to control their emotions. This brain maturation lasts approximately until the age of twenty, and if the adult despairs, this situation will turn into chaos.
Various strategies will help children and parents cope with this situation and strengthen the little ones’ emotional intelligence. Children are in the process of discovering their own tastes and needs; that’s why one day they may like something and the next day they may not. Parents should take their children’s tantrums calmly and empathize, giving them more tools to know and manage their emotions.
Children are very likely to hit people during a tantrum. That happens since they are not in the capacity to express their wishes verbally, so their response is physical.
Parents should explain to children why they cannot give in to their tantrums and show them that there are other ways to express their anger. The more this is repeated, the greater your ability to understand and manage your emotions.
Tantrums in public can be quite an intimidating situation for parents. In general, people tend to blame parents for this behavior. In this case of pressure, parents come to punish and lose control over the situation.
What people think is not important. This is the right time to help children recognize their feelings, show them effectively that they are making mistakes, and that they will always have their parents’ support. Guide your children with love in each of their emotions and help them put their feelings into words.
In times of tantrums, parents must stay in their position; limits are of great importance. By giving up their tempers, children will not learn to deal with their frustration, which will have serious implications for the rest of their lives. Children must learn that sometimes they will lose; by giving in to tantrums, parents reinforce these behaviors in them.
One way to deal with this situation without the child taking control of it is by giving him/her the option to choose between continuing to a tantrum or calm down. He/she must know what consequence each of the decisions brings; little by little, children learn to manage their emotions intelligently.
