Dealing with tantrums

Everyone wants to stay sane, so consider which battles are worth fighting over. If you have a child who frequently has tantrums then ignore the ones that don’t involve someone else being hit or hurt in some way. Stop yourself from getting involved every time he has a tantrum, as this can be particularly rewarding for some children.
