Temper tantrums, meltdowns, hissy fits — whatever you want to call them, they’re a nightmare for parents.
Temper tantrums are emotional outbursts that your kids can have at any time, which almost always feels like the worst time. Usually, something sets them off, like you saying no or them not getting their way. There can be crying, screaming, stomping, and even hitting at times.
While you can sometimes predict when your child is going to have one, there are times they come out of nowhere. Many kids throw a tantrum to test the limits. If I scream and cry, will I eventually get my way? We all know the answer here should be no.
