How do we STOP ๐Ÿ›‘ tantrums in big kids?

Good parenting always seem to surround rationalizing with kids rather than having to reprimand/mete out punishment. But how if kids refuse being rationalized to like my Type A elder daughter? Below are some quick solutions:

1. Ask her to think for herself –

Builds life skill of thinking independently but if kid refuses to do so,

2. Offer an alternative –

People like to be given options and that includes kids. One option is listening to what mom has to say. ๐Ÿ˜

3. Then give a hug –

Always works!

.

Surprisingly, it works the other way with younger kids (like preschoolers) – ie to hug first, reason and provide some options (usually 2 suffice, no need to wreck our brains too much ๐Ÿ˜…), then finally get them to think for themselves when they are done with the outburst.

Wierd, isn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜Š
