18 Month Tantrums; How to Deal

My daughter isn't 18 months yet but she is 1 year and I think at this age there just ins't much you can do. You cannot reason with an 18 Month old. I find what works the best for us is redirection.

    Let them have their fit as long as they aren't harming themselves or others.. but they need to express themselves.. before they can have words.. then talk them through it.. giving them words too, "You feel mad don't you?" or "it's frustrating when you don't get what you want isn't it?"

    I found that empathy works wonders..
