Dealing with your child's tantrums

emotional storms tantrums Dec 21, 2023

Do you ever feel powerless in the face of your child's emotional outbursts? Whether it's in a crowded store or a quiet art gallery, it can be tough to know how to manage when a meltdown occurs.

While confidence may not be the right word to describe how you're feeling, it's critical to remember that the way you treat your child in these moments is what matters most to them. Everyone else is secondary.

Navigating these moments successfully depends on your ability to understand the underlying reasons or factors that led up to the outburst. Even if you don't fully understand them, taking a step back to acknowledge that there are underlying reasons is vital.

I've developed an effective approach to help you navigate these storms. Check out my free on-demand video training at www.huddlewisdom.com/gettools

In episode 086 of the Parenting with Huddle Wisdom podcast, I dive into several important themes that can help you tailor your approach to your child's specific needs. These themes include:

  • The importance of connecting with the underlying wounds and frictional forces that produced the emotional storm, rather than solely focusing on damage control.
  • Understanding your child's inherent strengths and limitations in the context of environmental demands and pressures.
  • The role of rules and their reasonableness.
  • The importance of consistency in your approach.
  • Understanding your own hang-ups and whether you may be part of the issue.

By understanding and implementing these themes, you can feel more confident in your ability to manage your child's emotional outbursts.
