Discover 4 Ways to Dismantle Temper Tantrums!

Have you been facing Temper Tantrums during this Pandemic? Not to fear we have 5 ways to help and home and even implemented when you are out and about! It’s common for your children to experience temper tantrums especially when they don’t get there way! You may experience outbursts of frustration, yelling, tears and even hitting. We have some good news…. with these tips, you will be able to develop a routine that will keep the terrible, temper tantrums at bay! 

Why do Temper Tantrums Happen? 

Tantrums can last anything between 2 -20 minutes! They are most common in children aged 1-5 years old.  As children are growing they are experiencing and adjusting to their own found independence. All of there social and emotional skills are beginning to develop. Because they don;t have the words to express themselves they express it in big emotions! This is the very first way they are able to manage there emotions and understanding what is going around them. It is believed than from 12 month’s is when children begin to understand and manage their behaviours. 

How do we handle them? 

Try to stay calm..(We know it’s easier than it sounds ) Take a breather if need to as if you get angry it makes the situation harder for you and your child. When you speak you have to be assertive and keep your voice calm and level. Take charge when you need to for Stay calm (or pretend to!) Take a moment for yourself if you need to. If you get angry, it’ll make the situation harder for both you and your child. When you speak, keep your voice calm and level, and act deliberately and slowly. Begin counting from 3 to 1 to regain control of the situation. And yes take charge when you need to. If the tantrum happens because your child wants something, don’t give your child what they want. If your child doesn’t want to do something, use your judgment. For example, if your child doesn’t want to get out of the bath, pulling out the plug might be safer than lifting out your child.

Don’t Reward Tantrums! 

Try to not shout or give extra attention during the tantrum. Do not give in to their requests for example they want a sweet or chocolate bar and because they are having a tantrum you give in. You can’t control your child’s emotions or behaviour directly. All you need to do is keep them safe and make sure they are not in any danger. 

Routine Will Take Time Don’t Give Up! 

When you begin to implement these changes it will take time for everything to work.  Remember your child is not doing this on purpose to upset you. The sooner you begin to practise the easier it will become! This is the time where you can teach new skills and give lots of positive attention

The 3 Don’ts on Returning Back To Work!

With families across the whole of the UK facing lockdown at Home. We have developed a new way of living. With home working, home schooling life has become a challenge for many. Lots of parents are wondering when life will resume back to normal when I return to work and what do I need to do to be prepared? Read below for our Parent Proofed tips on the 3 Don’ts on Returning Back To Work!

I Don’t Think I Can Return to Work Right Now….

Employees should be ready to return to work at short notice, but employers should be flexible if possible. If your employer asks you to return to work straight away, you can discuss with your employer if you can’t return. You may have no childcare options at present or you may be shielding personally or family members. Whatever the reason may be, ask your employer so that you are given the opportunity to put things in place, before you return. Be specific and ask them to give you a chance to sort out childcare or any other needs. 

I Don’t Want To Leave My Kids

The separation anxiety is going to be heightened due to the increased amount of time spent at home. Children love there home environment and it can become hard to separate them from it. As you are returning back to work speak to your employer, understand if it is necessary and safe for you to return to work. If so explain to them how you may have to check in more with your childcare provider or family member with calls, or even online platform Zoom. If your child is 0-5 all that will definitely help to settle them back in comfortably.  

I Don’t Think I Have The Support

Many Families during Covid-19 have been facing challenges. Speak with your family first and see if there is any changes that can be made to support you going back to work. If that is not possible go directly to your Employer. Most good employers will be able to offer some support in going back to work, whether thats working from home, reducing hours, or placing you on furlough. It is a very needed conversation to have! If you find that you can’t speak to your employer try speaking with your HR department or finding our more from Citizens Advice.
