1 Year Old Temper Tantrums

My daughter just turned one, and boy was I surprised at the fit throwing and tantrums. I wasn't really prepared for this, this early on. As far as early intervention goes, I don't know that there is much that can be done, you cannot reason with a 1 year old. They are learning about emotions and how to push buttons and boundaries and I think that is normal. As far as stopping the tantrums I find the easiest thing to do with her is to just redirect her focus to something else. This usually gets her distracted and she moves on.

    redirection is best. Always kneel down and look her in the eyes to tell her she can't act that way. Stay strong mamma!

      I agree with what all of you have already said. It kind of has to run its course until she can be redirected.
