    Hey guys

    Just wandering how you have approached the toddler tantrum phase. Its becoming more apparent in my son just feel I stress out at that point and dunno how to approach it.

    We played in the back yard and then went for a walk by the river as it is quite pleasant out but he wasnt happy with the walk. Sometimes feel im losing my strength. Dont feel fully energised atm so its draining me even more

    Hi, although itโ€™s a veeery long time ago since I had toddler tantrums! I used to either a) distract them out of it or b) walk way to let them work it out (not too far when they were really small) and wait for disapproving looks from others ๐Ÿ˜† It will get easier I promise, nursery used to be the worse with one of mine & I would ring from the car park to be told she was fine it was all show for me ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi

    I know we have all been kids and had tantrums so im not complaining about that just need some coping strategies haha feel im going mad. Just exhausted everyday but he is a wonderfully happy little boy but as you say i think he plays on me. He is good for other people if im not there if im there he can kick up a fuss more

    He isnt a fussy eater and he has been a fabulous sleeper so i cant ask for much more hey

    I feel your pain with the tantrums! My sons are usually in the middle of a supermarket and very loud. ๐Ÿ™ˆ I do sadly get some judgey stares from other shoppers! I try to just carry on as normal and ignore as best I can and talk to him calmly and wait for it to pass over him and then he wants cuddling. Not sure if that helps at all! If anyone has any other good tips Iโ€™d be really interested!

    The judgey looks are silly as if they havent heard a child fuss before and parents are supposed to breeze through it all the time hey. Doesnt happen. My son knows what he’s doing sometimes when he doesnt like something and has a bit of a paddy. I stress sometimes others laugh to myself and the fuss is over soon enough
