Point and Shoot: Tantrum Central

Friday afternoon, 28th January, Venus Bay Skate Bowl

Two year olds little girls live in a whole other world... one where they are in charge and should be allowed to do whatever they want, whatever their big brothers do, especially things that their mummy might deem to be unsafe.  Like, perhaps, scooting around the lip of the skate park.  Without a helmet on.

When these tantys happen at home she would normally hang her head down near her feet and scream as if being murdered.  In this case though, the pavement was a little warm and I think as it started burning her forehead, she realised that squatting and screaming was just as effective.

And how do we stop these ear-splitting scream fests?



We give in! 
Which is perhaps why the tantrum is such an effective behaviour for her in the first place.  You'd think by the third one I would have realised this!
