Temper tantrums are a common feature in many children. These children are usually the only child of the parents and are sure that their parents will give in to their tantrum. Many parents like to give in to their child's requests because they think that their child will start hating them if they do not give in to the requests of the child. There are also many other parents who give in to the temper tantrums of the child because they do not want to have the child continue the tantrum. Whichever way you look at it, in the above situations, the parents have lost and the child has won.

When the child wins the temper tantrum war once, it only gets reinforced more and the next time, the tantrum will be more prolonged and also louder. This will make the parents to give in more easily and the child will continue like this and the temper tantrum becomes a habit in the child. Even if the parent tries to be strong willed at times, the child knows that the parents will ultimately give in.

There are various methods of coping with these temper tantrums of your children without giving in to them and at the same time making sure that you are trying to make them understand that these temper tantrums will not work with you. This will make sure that the child does not employ the same techniques the next time.

1. Be firm in your decision:

The parent should be firm in the decision and should not give in because the child is embarrassing you by making too much noise or too much trouble. If you give in once then you will have to give in again and again. To prevent this, the parent should identify the tantrum the first time and then try not to give in.

2. Make your child understand that tantrums do not work:

After the tantrum is over, make your child sit down and say that the temper tantrums do not work with you. This will also make sure that you are firm. The child will understand that there is no use in the tantrums the next time and will avoid going through the trouble of putting up a tantrum.

3. Ignore the tantrum:

Ignoring the tantrum is the best method of dealing with the tantrum. The parents should not try to control the child and instead try to give a deaf ear. The more you try to console or pacify your child, the more tantrums will the child make. The best method of dealing with this is to ignore the tantrum.

4. Reward the good work:

Try to reward the child as much as possible when the child has been good. At the same time, do not bribe the child. This is because there is a difference between both these things and if you reward the child, it will reinforce positive behavior and if you bribe the child, then the child will only do what you say if you give something to the child.

These are the methods of coping with your child's tantrums and modifying the child's behavior.
