TIPS TO PREVENT TANTRUMS OF PRESCHOOLERS
by Mothers Pride Preschool
The toddler life is
almost incomplete without a phase when they have the ability to throw as many
tantrums to get demands fulfilled. Preschoolers from the age of 2-4 are known
to throw a lot of tantrums which is mainly because they crave attention. They would
do something inappropriate to catch the eye of the parents or preschool
teachers. In case of lack of attention, they tend to become all the more
cranky. Another important reason for the preschoolers throwing tantrums is
their inability to express properly at such a nascent stage. “Sometimes, my
students start cringing because they are tired or hungry, which makes them
angry.”, shares Mrs. Sharma, a caretaker from a leading daycare centre in
Delhi. However, most of the kids preschools in Delhi have witnessed kids’
tantrums due to the emergence of independence among them. At this age, they do
not want to be controlled, they rather want to take charge of the situation and
if they hear a ‘no’, you’ve just triggered another tantrum! But, as they say,
during formative years, toddlers’ minds are like clay, they can be molded into
beautiful shapes with love and care! Their tantrums must be tamed at the right
time before the situation gets out of hand. Read on to know how you can prevent
tantrums of your little ones:
become agitated because they fail to comprehend certain things.”We always tell
our parents to get down to the brain level of the kids, try to understand them
and make them understand in a way that is easy for them to grasp.”, says the academic
head of Mother’s Pride, a kids preschool in Delhi. This way, the children will
be able to relate more and react calmly.
Many teachers at top
daycare centre in Delhi have experienced child tantrums because of attention
issue which they then solved by providing equal positive attention to every
child, listening to their thoughts and caring for each one of them. The moment
they realise that they are being heard, they will automatically learn to
Set clear rules
In terms of fulfilling
demands, a mere ‘no’ might be the biggest cause of worry. So, the easiest way
out is to set simple rules that they can understand and live upon. By verbally
telling them the do’s and don’ts, there is a possibility for them to take the
rules lightly. Thus, clarity will bring a massive change in their attitude.
Teach new skills
preschools in Delhi ensure to constantly teach new things to the little ones so
that their mind becomes prompt and is diverted towards achieving something.
Don’t forget to appreciate them regularly so that they can feel proud in being
‘goody-two-shoes’. Also, start indulging them in activities that intrigue them.
One of the most
important factors to keep in mind is communication. Introduce the toddlers to a
disciplined way of speaking and increase their habit of listening to others.
While teachers at daycare centres in Delhi promote communication through
activities like circle time, at home, parents should try to become their best
friends so that they can openly talk. Communication most efficiently prevents
Incentives or Consequences
If you tell your
child that their favorite toy will be snatched away if they crib about
something, they will stop misbehaving in fear of losing it. On the other hand,
you must also provide them some kind of incentive such as an ice cream after a
well behaved outing to the super market. This will make them want to work on
their behavior and present their best side.
