What are ways to help teach kids be resilient when they don't get their way? Is there an effective way to discipline a young child when they're throwing a tantrum over not getting their way?

i guess i just don't don't like the idea of just ignoring them. sorry. i just think that throwing a tantrum is very naughty and i don't ignore bad behavior, i deal with it. its very embarrassingin public when a child behaves that way, to say the least. throwing a fit is completely not allowed in my house.
i won't let my two or four year old throw a fit when they don't get their way. when i say no and they even start to cry about it i reprimand them immediately. its just not acceptable. that's just me though. i'm a strict mommy.

well, to each his own. but to say that ignoring your child when they throw a fit is the only way that works, is a bit much don't you think? i would never bribe my children or threaten them, that would be pointless and not work. and hitting them until they are calm is a ridiculous notion, seen that would only upset them more and be counterproductive. but i will say that trowing a fit is not acceptable. doing so should only warrant discipline. and ignoring bad behavior is not training a child to behave in an acceptable manor, it only anchorages selfish and disrespectful behavior.Â you said that when your child is in the early stages you can ask her if she wants to go to her spot and she says no. that, to me, sounds more like a bribe. (if you behave and not annoy me, you wont have to go away so i am not annoyed)
