16 Things You Should Never Say During A Toddler Tantrum
Stop crying/screaming/throwing things!
“Oh, this is annoying you? Then I’m going to do it even more!” That’s what goes through a toddler’s mind when they hear that. Truth be told, there are SO VERY MANY TIMES we want to yell and scream and throw shit. So many! If you’ve ever done it, then you know that it feels so good. It is cathartic as hell, and we do not blame a pissed off toddler for wanting to get their rage out in that manner. Sure, it can be frustrating to be on the receiving end of it. And some toddlers throw surprisingly hard. But if they need to do it, leave the room and let them do it. No reason you have to stand there and watch, you can eat candy in the other room while they’re distracted.
