16 Things You Should Never Say During A Toddler Tantrum
Why are you crying?
If they knew, they would probably tell you. But dollars to donuts they’re not crying about any of the things they got mad about in the first place. The tantrum has evolved, it’s anyone’s guess. Maybe they started crying because they ran out of Goldfish (hard same, toddler friend). Or maybe they had a legitimate reason, like they hurt themselves or were very tired! All totally understandable. But about five minutes into a toddler tantrum, their crying becomes a life force all its own. There’s no reason to cry for 30 solid minutes about Goldfish, so clearly they’ve moved on. Try to keep up, will you?
