    whitetulips. hugs to you.

    It is a tough age because of the communication issues and the frustration it causes them.

    Even though i know all the things you are meant to do my daughter still has massive tantrums and sometimes i think to myself i must be doing something wrong. I have come to the conclusion that all I can do as a parent is accept that kids aren't capable of alot of control at a young age, but i still have a responsiblity to teach her what is acceptable and what isnt…and if i can somehow do that without getting angry or upset then i am doing well.

    Good on you for being so honest about your situation and reaching out for advice, sometimes it feels like i am the only parent with a young child that misbehaves.

    You are not alone and you are doing an awesome job…with time it will get better, just hang in there.

    No worries whitetulips. Hope things have been ok for you lately, you deserve a break.

    i just thought i would share this in case it helps anyone. I had a visit with our occupational therapist yesterday (we have access to it as part of services to help her catch up after hearing issues since early on). I asked the therapist about how to deal with her tantrums as they are getting worse and she told me the following.

    She said that kids 0-7 need physical input/stimulation to balance them, and this is why some kids jump up and down alot or do other physical things to try and balance themselves out when feeling frustrated or just excited etc. Anyway, she suggested that when DD looks like she is about to tantrum or if i need her to be calm for something like a nappy change i should give her some physical exertion or excerise (like jumping on a trampoline, running, just jumping up and down with her or turning her upside down or even just picking her up and bouncing her up and down a bit in a playful way - she said alot of young kids prefer the up and down movement to any other type). So i have been doing this when i can feel a tantrum coming on or if i am at the shops or in a situation where i am trying to avoid an outburst.

    Anyway, it has been working and really reducing alot of the stress of nappy changes, of getting her back in the pram when we are leaving the park or at home when she starts to be naugty - so i thought i would share the tip.

    Theres no point in trying to reason with a trantrum throwing toddler!!! Walk away, wait til she calms down and then try to reason with her.
    The only thing that will come out of giving her ANY attention while she tantrums is MORE TANTRUMS!!!

    I know its hard but you really MUST walk away! I used to do this when my DD was throwing tantrums and i still do it.
    Dd started throwing tantrums earlier this year where she would bang her head sometimes. Walking away put a stop to them. She did get cuddles if she hurt herself from hitting her head.

    well, for me, i avoid the tantrum. let the kid whine for a little while do what he wants. when he's tired he'll give it up. do this like twice and he'll realize it himself that it's of no use
