Two days ago (and until now) , I been having contractions and I thought I will give birth to Sati before Friday, but it was all false alarm. I plan on putting up her first tantrums for this week but it seems, Sati is not a willing victim.
Just wanna share this (source)
Don’t try to argue or remonstrate with the child. While the tantrum lasts, she is beyond reason.
Don’t scream back if you can possibly help it. Anger is very infectious and you may well find yourself becoming angrier with every yell she utters. Try not to join in. If you do, you are likely to prolong the outburst because just as the toddler was about to calm down, she will become aware of your angry voice and it will start her off again.
Don’t let the child feel rewarded or punished for a tantrum. You want her to see that tantrums, which are horrible for her, change nothing, either for or against her. If she threw the tantrum because you would not let her go out into the garden, don’t change your mind and let her out now. Equally, if you had been going to take her for a walk before she had the tantrum, you should take her all the same, as soon as she is calm again.
Don’t let tantrums embarrass you into kid-glove handling. Many parents dread tantrums in public places but you must not let your toddler sense your concern. If you are reluctant to take her into the corner shop in case she throws a tantrum for sweets, or if you treat her with saccharin sweetness whenever visitors are present in case ordinary handling should provoke an outburst, she will soon realize what is going on. Once your toddler realises that her genuinely uncontrollable tantrums are having an effect on your behaviour towards her, she is bound to learn to use them and to work herself up into the semi-deliberate tantrums which are typical of inappropriately handled four-year-olds.

Hi MOmmy Pehpot, how are you na? so ready for Sati to come out?Yup, tantrums can be a challenge, but, I ignore my kids when they throw some, especially in public places, I walk away and they realize I wasn't kidding. Either they keep crying and stay at the store or they can stop and be with me..Take care and Have a great weekend..

Minsan sis mahirap sundin ng mga pointers na nababasa natin kapag mainit ang ulo natin minsan nakakapagsalita tayo ng hindi maganda sa mga bagets later on we would feel guilty about it. ganyan ako madalas.
