Temper tantrums are a common and normal behavior in children between two and three years of age. This behavior is a normal steppingstone towards a child's independence and development of self identity. children naturally challenge rules and limitations without regard for their own safety and well-being. It is the parents' job to redirect children who exhibit inappropriate behaviors and remove them from situations that may place them in danger. Children who have seen their own desires thwarted often react with disappointment and intense emotion. Young children lack the capacity to effectively manage and control these emotions. During a temper tantrum a child may drop to the floor, cry and scream uncontrollably, bang their heads, kick their feet, or pound their hands. Some children may act violently by throwing things, trying to hit other people, or destroying property. It is often difficult, tiring, or embarrassing to deal with temper tantrums, especially in public. Nonetheless, it is important for parents to anticipate temper tantrums and have a plan in place for coping with the situation.
