Hi there! I have a 31 month DD and I am really struggling keeping my cool during her tantrums this week. She had another stage of tantrums around her two year birthday and now they seem to be back. I am normally pretty good keeping calm and redirecting during whininess, but when it gets to be a full blown tantrum I have lost it three times this week! I feel so bad. I try to use positive discipline, but the tantrums just throw me for a loop and I end up yelling and getting really frustrated, which obviously doesn't help in calming her down. I always apologize afterwards and explain how I feel, but I would like to try to prevent my out bursts from happening because that is not a good example for her.
Does anyone have any techniques they use to keep themselves level headed during a tantrum? Thanks in advance!
