What do you do when suddenly out of no where your child starts crying and kicking his/her feet on the floor for a whole hour just because they wanted juice before their supper? The child knows very well that he shouldn't have juice before supper.
The pressure starts to take over you, you feel the adrenaline raising up, you feel that your ears are about to explode, but you know that no matter what, you must retain your sensitive nerves because you are the adult. Then you think: Oh my God! What can I do? How can I manage this and still keep my nerves from blowing? How can I resist this irritating noise? God! I feel helpless, but I must find a solution, after all I am the boss. Sound familiar?
I had this situation just yesterday with my daughter. At some point I decided to close the to my kitchen and go to my room to take a few big deep breathes so I can deal with the situation effectively and calmly. I came back and let her cry out a few more minutes and than she just stopped and we were best friends again. She went back to being the most adorable wonderful mommy's little girl.
I must say that this experience is pretty tiring for my ears especially that I am a person who is extremely sensitive to noise. Well this is all part of being a mummy. Sometimes we get hugs and kisses and funny comments and other times well...TANTRUMS!!
How do you cope with your child's tantrums? I would love to hear your experience. You are welcome to leave comments in the box below.
