Angry toddler: what to do?
I think Tishhad some great ideas. I also think 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. Sometimes it takes a process of elimination for something to work at calming them down. And of course, every toddler will be different to in what works and what doesn't.
But if it gets to bad i just walk them to their rooms and walk out. Let them throw, kick and destroy. When i dong hear it anymore i go back and say all better to talk. After talk i make them clean up their rooms which usually leads into i cant of another meltdown.
