How do you deal with temper tantrums. Especially if one is thrown before bed?
if dd (age 2.5) flies off the handle while we are out and about, we immediately pull her away from the situation and deal with it. If she throws one at home, we give her no mind for a few of minutes (until she gets over the anger stage) and then comfort her and deal with it. At bedtime, though, nothing seems to work to (a) stop the tantrum while (b) getting her any closer to going to bed. If we just let her be and not try to help her work through it, it only escalates.
Any advice/opinions are welcome!
