Tips for Taming Tantrums

Tips for Taming Tantrums - Young parents get scared when they hear stories about... toddler tantrums... Take courage, though, you will survive this stressful stage.

It’s not easy to understand why your toddler has a tantrum but at such a young age, a child is consumed with thoughts of themselves.

Everything... is about them and how they feel.

Until they are taught how to share, every toy or piece of food they see automatically belongs to them. Toddler tantrums can have a variety of effects. Your first thought might be that everyone is FOCUSED on you and your screaming child, but getting embarrassed won’t diffuse the situation.

Tips for Taming Tantrums

Besides, as a parent, you have many more years of 'embarrassing situations' to look forward to... courtesy of your children. So worrying about what others think during this toddler tantrum, is simply going to stress you and make you feel worse.

Here are a few tips to help you cope during toddler tantrums:

Ignore the tantrum. This technique works best when at home. In public places, you don’t want to ever leave your child unattended as a form of punishment. Good behavior in public begins at home.

Ignoring toddler tantrums is not mean. If your child is squirming on the floor screaming for a cookie, continue to talk to them as if you never noticed. Eventually, they will get the hint and stop screaming.

How about not disturbing other people if you are in a public place? Take the brat outside. I choose not to have children and don't want to be bothered by any one else's "little darling". It's not about the tantrum, its about good parenting and consideration of others within earshot.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
