If we're at home, I just let my daughter have her tantrum. I'll walk out of the room while she lays on the floor and kicks and screams, I just make sure she's not near anything she can knock over on top of her and such. And if she continues to do it and also starts doing bad things like hitting or throwing things, she gets put in time-out and gets her TV time and treats taken away for the day.
If we're out in public, I usually just let her sit in the buggy and have her tantrum. Yes, people look at me like I'm a bad parent but I don't care what they think. I had a toddler and toddler's will throw their little fits for no reason at all.
