Tantrums and strops
Filter by age group
It’s totally normal for your child to have tantrums. It’s a way for them to learn how to deal with their emotions, test boundaries and tell you what's wrong. But as a parent, watching them have an outburst can be enough to set you off on one of your own! We’ve pulled together some really useful tips that will help you understand why your child is acting up and make it easier to deal with huffs and puffs as they’re happening.
