Tantrum

Danial is 17 months old now : Week 4

Baca-baca about a 17mths old toddler and came across with tantrum.

Managing meltdowns
If you haven't witnessed a tantrum firsthand yet, you may very soon. Tantrums are an expression of frustration over something a toddler can't do, either physically or because it's not allowed. Mix in fatigue or hunger, and kaboom!
As much as you may wish you could soothe the savage beastie right away, there's no magic formula. A tantrum usually burns itself out faster if you act neutral or even ignore it instead of responding with a sympathetic cluck or rational explanation.
Once your child calms down, offer her a lap and a chance to regroup. Try distraction (rather than giving in to something you refused). Don't punish a tantrum. At this age, your child can't help herself.

Mommy's love kene demam campak tapi lasak as always :)
Fair enough. I blame the hormonal imbalance, selalu hilang sabar dengan Danial. Kadang-kadang sebenarnya nak lepaskan marah dekat orang lain, tapi Danial ada dia yang kena. But not to the extent of sampai nak mendera anak. Danial, sorry if mommy's not a perfect mom. But, I will try my best to provide you with eternal love and prosperity. Semoga Danial jadi anak yang soleh dan berjaya di dunia dan di akhirat. Amin.
