Tantrums, Tears and Meltdowns Explained

Children under six years of age are realising they are separate individuals from their parents and caregivers. This means they are driven to assert themselves, communicate their likes and dislikes, and act independently. At the same time, they do not understand logic and still have a hard time with waiting and self-control. This is why you hear “no” and “me do it” more than ever before. This masterclass will help you understand why your child is behaving in a certain way and learn how to respond appropriately.
