Message length 300 characters recommended

sometimes they have to calm down and be left alone if it's a full out tantrum. Using a quiet voice can sometimes get their attention enough that they quiet down. Sometimes distracting them from whatever they are angry about helps. It's a guessing game dependent on the situation and the degree of anger


When my 18 month old daughter is angry, while trying to soothe her, I offer her words for what she is feeling. Although she may not understand them or be able to repeat them yet, with consistency, I think she will be able to make the connection when she is developmentally able.
