Temper Tantrums

What are Temper Tantrums?

A temper tantrum (or tirade or hissy fit) is an emotional outburst, usually associated with children or those in emotional distress, that is typically characterized by stubbornness, crying, screaming, yelling, shrieking, defiance, angry ranting, a resistance to attempts at pacification and, in some cases, violence. Physical control may be lost, the person may be unable to remain still, and even if the "goal" of the person is met he or she may not be calmed. A tantrum may be expressed in a tirade: a protracted, angry, or violent speech.

As frustrating as they are, temper tantrums are a normal part of early childhood. Essentially, temper tantrums are your child’s way of dealing with frustration and disappointment and a way for children to establish some independence.

Coming in a great variety of shapes and sizes, temper tantrums can range from fits of screaming and uncontrollable crying, to great explosions of anger and acting-out behavior. In the throws of a tantrum, children may drop to the floor, kick, scream, or run away, and in some cases, hold their breath, vomit or become physically aggressive to those around them.

What Causes Temper Tantrums?

An important thing to keep in mind is that your child is not throwing a tantrum simply to annoy you; in fact, your child is probably just as distressed and stressed as you are except they just aren’t as good at containing these negative emotions.

If properly controlled, temper tantrums can be kept to a minimum and they need not be a major cause for concern. However, some children do have a lower tolerance for frustration and sometimes parents and their children need a little help.
