  • I tell my son im ignoring him until he is done throwing his fit and I stick to it and that seems to work for me. He throws a fit for like 30 seconds and then hes done.

  • I really believe 2-3 year olds throw fits for attention. So don't act like it bothers don't really even have to say anything. I know my mom used to walk away from my sister and me and we caught on that she was not interested in our theatrics.

  • Have clear rules and do not vary from them. The tantrums are often to get the parent to change what is allowed. Stay calm and consistent on what is allowed and what isn't. Don't react in anger.........stay calm and loving.
