2 Year Old Temper Tantrums Child: How To Deal With Temper Tantrums?

A temper tantrum is a behavior problem where children assert their independence by violently objecting to discipline by displaying anger at an uncontrollable level.

It occurs when a child cannot express their feelings or emotions when they are in frustration.

Seen from 12 months to 4 years of age; after four years, it will gradually decrease. 

Temper tantrums are seen mainly in toddlers. The toddlers express their anger by lying on the floor, kicking or stamping their feet, screaming, and sometimes hurting themselves. Few may become stiff, and few may have ‘breath-holding spells’ or banging of the head.
