Parenting Techniques That Produce Persistent Kids…Or Don’t
Justifying their tantrums
Sometimes, your kid will throw a tantrum because a teacher or coach reprimanded them. Sometimes they’ll throw a tantrum, crying and screaming, because a friend picked some sort of fight with them. Don’t immediately assume everyone else is wrong and your kid is a victim, marching off to confront her “attacker.” Ask your kid what happened. Make her think through it and talk through it.
