Now that my youngest is becoming a toddler, I can see her personality coming out more every day. After a rough day of tantrums, I asked myself how to deal with toddler tantrums? I always heard the phrase that each child is different but I thought that even when they are different the techniques never change. But, I was wrong because my two toddlers are completely different and deal with things differently. It’s almost like my 18-month old turned on a switch and is changing personality. She never gave me any problems with eating but now she never wants to eat. She was a quiet baby but now she loves to scream. Is it the beginning of the terrible twos? If it’s so then she has a head start on it. It takes a lot of patience to be able to figure out what your toddler wants when they can’t use their words but use screams instead.
It’s difficult dealing with two different personalities when they themselves are learning how objects, people, and their own bodies work. They want a sense of independence and control over everything and they want to communicate but they have the lack of language.
When I get stressed out, I just take a moment for myself by giving myself a facial mask or taking a walk with the kids. Facials can be so relaxing and make you feel refreshed at the same time. I can’t let the tantrums get the best of me because life is too short after all. In the end, you don’t want to show the kids that they are getting to you because then they know how to get their way.
For now, I am just dealing with each day as it comes and hoping for the best. I am actually hoping that it’s just the terrible two’s and it will all be over soon. It’s all about being fashionable in your own way so do what you have to do to keep your sanity but add grace to whatever you do.
