tantrumThe terrible twos are here! And as every parent knows all too well, tantrums can start earlier than that, and last much longer. Watching as your little angel becomes a little monster is hard for every parent. But it's all part of growing up. Your toddler has emotions they don’t know how to deal with, and it can be hard work feeling small and helpless in the big world. As they wail and flail, you may want to do the same!

It can be useful to take a deep breath and count to ten. When the temper tantrum’s over, the best thing is giving your tired tot a big hug. With plenty of playing, talking and reading, your toddler will learn to understand their emotions and hopefully this will help to reduce these outbursts over time.
