Publisher's Summary

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.
