When children cry, kick and scream with great force, throwing themselves to the ground, they are usually experiencing a form of tantrum, which resulted in the child usually not listen to reason at this time.

Most parents are afraid of these tantrums, so it’s important to be able to differentiate between the types of tantrums and to know how they originate and how to react in each case.

Tantrums to attract attention or demand something

This tantrums is most often ways children are trying to express their needs. Usually they do it as a means of asking for more attention, either because their needs are not met or they need time to adjust.

Experts say that this tantrum sometimes occurs because the child feels isolated. The best approach is to connect, direct your child attention and redirect your child to let him calm down in order to observe the reasons why he has acted this way.

Many times, the frustration is the result of your child not understanding the instructions that are given to him. If this is the case, it’s important that you spend time explaining things and talking about how he feels.

If the answer is the first option, it’s important that you pay more attention to your child when he speaks to you, and if it’s the second, that you demonstrate that he cannot always have everything that he wants.

During tantrums that are meant to get attention, children cry, kick and throw themselves to the ground, and sometimes they even stop breathing for a few seconds, are some ways children exhibit emotions

Lack of self-control:

they don’t have control over their feeling until they grow up. One of the things we need to be aware of is that children don’t start having control of their emotions until the age of 12-13 yrs.

This type of tantrum is very common.

It’s just a sign that your child is very small and doesn’t have full control over his feelings and emotions.

Therefore, he cries and becomes irritable. It may also be due to the fact that his requirements haven’t been met, or due to simple manipulation.

Destructive Tantrums

This type of tantrum is very aggressive and sometimes can end up producing unpleasant episodes. In them, children can get out of control and, in addition to screaming and crying, hit other people or throw objects around, often involuntarily.

If this happens, the best solution is to take your child to a quiet place and try to connect USING THE CDR Approach.
