"If you are the parent of a toddler or preschooler, chances are you know a thing or two about tantrums. While those epic meltdowns can certainly be part of 'normal' toddler behavior, they are still maddening, stressful, and exhausting--for everyone involved. What can you do to keep your cool and help your child calm down? Rebecca Schrag Hershberg, child psychologist and mother of two, has a unique understanding of both the science behind tantrums and what works in the heat of the moment to nip blowups in the bud. With her customizable plan, you'll learn: why your toddler's developing brain is hardwired for 'big emotions'; what you may be doing (unintentionally) to encourage outbursts; ways to use structure and routines to help your child feel secure; how to reduce tantrums at tough times of day, from wake-up to bedtime; strategies for managing tantrums under difficult circumstances, from travel to moving to divorce; ways to deepen your parent-child connection--starting right now"-- Provided by publisher.
