Tantrums are a thing that a lot of parents have to deal with—and that’s perfectly normal! You can expect young children to have several tantrums a day. But that doesn’t make them any easier to handle in the moment.
If you’ve ever told your child “no” you’ve likely heard some whining or pouting in response. This is a perfectly normal response from kids, and it’s also frustrating to deal with. But just because it’s normal doesn’t mean you need to let them continue that behavior.
When parents first start looking for behavior solutions, they are usually looking to stop bad or obnoxious behaviors. The other side of that coin is working on encouraging kids to do good things, and the things they are supposed to be doing like finishing their homework, getting ready to go in the morning, and eating their dinner.
