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