Assunto:  Fazer Pirraça [to throw a tantrum]



When children throw tantrums, often the parent  doesn’t know exactly how to react. If the tantrum is thrown in a public place, the parent may become even more frustrated with their child. Frustration doesn’t belong solely to the parent, however. Typically, when a child throws a tantrum it is because she cannot handle her own frustration.
What can you do to prevent or at least handle these tantrums? Of course, the simplest solution is to try and prevent the tantrums from beginning. Try not to set extreme limits on your child. Even young toddlers respond well to choices. Instead of saying, “Get ready for bed”, you could say, “Do you want to brush your teeth first, or would you rather put on your pajamas?” The end result will be the same, but you have given your child the opportunity to participate in decisions.



Of course, there are other alternatives. This is one of them.
