Some of the normal children behavior problems are: biting, crying, talking back, screaming, kicking, and breath-holding. The possible reasons for behavior problems can be sleepiness, loneliness, wants attention, illness, hungry, adapting to change in life.
Avoid getting angry with your child, stay calm and talk with a calm tone of voice. Try to ignore the tantrum if you can. You don't have to make a deal with the child, let your "no" be "no, and your "yes" be "yes." But you as the adult can make sure the child is in a safe place while they are having their tantrum.
And always praise your child for good behavior such as arts and crafts, classwork, physical activities, and good behavior.
Ways to prevent temper tantrums in children
- Give your child hugs often.
- Make sure the child is not sick.
- Ask the child the reason they are having the tantrum.
- Have your child to eat a breakfast in the mornings.
- Avoid skipping meals throughout the day for your child's nutrition and behavior.
- Get your child to bed at night at an early time and take a nap during the day.
If your child bites during a temper tantrum let them know it's not alright to bite anyone, and give them praise when they don't bite.
