How To Prevent Temper Tantrums In Public Places

Temper tantrums from children especially in public places are every parents’ nightmare. It can be very embarrassing, awkward, and humiliating. You can feel the snickering, finger-pointing, and staring – everyone is watching and waiting for your next move.

It is important to prevent and deal with tantrums in public the ‘right’ way while keeping to your positive parenting. Here are tips to prevent tantrums before you even set foot outside the house;

  1. Be Prepared: Before leaving your house, make a mental checklist of where you will be going and what issues could arise to trigger a tantrum.
  2. Give your toddler an illusion of control: Always try to give your child a choice. These little choices won’t make much of a difference to you, but they’ll make your child feel as though they have at least some control over their own life.
  3. Know your child’s limits: If you know your child is tired, it will not be a good idea to take him/her out.
  4. Give rewards: Reward your child with praise and attention for positive behavior.
  5. Give them a little attention: When you’re in a public place, don’t forget to include your child in the conversation or activity.
  6. Make sure your child is both well-fed and well-rested before running errands so they don’t blow up at the slightest provocation.
  7. Control your reactions: Don’t combat the tantrum with anger. Instead, treat it as an opportunity to educate your child.
  8. Be consistent: As long as you handle tantrums effectively at home — that is, by not giving in — they’ll eventually lessen when you’re in public places with your kids.

With a bit of planning, you can have an array of distractions on hand to prevent a temper tantrum.
