Understand tantrums: understand why children have tantrums, this will help you develop skills on how to handle them.

Take charge: if a tantrum starts because your child needs something, don’t give them what they want, don’t try to reason with him or her. Use your judgement. if your child wants to do something and you don’t want it, you can find another means to stop them. For instance, if your child doesn’t want to get out of the bath, pull out the plug rather than to lift him or her out.

Getting kids away from the scene of the tantrum can help them snap out of it quickly. Create a diversion; it is believed that distraction can help ward off a major melt down before it happens. Giving your child some space might also help.
