Big sister won’t share her new pen. Or you need to make an important
phone call. Suddenly, your calm little child begins to spin out of control.
Call it what you will – tantrum, outburst, meltdown, or fit – it is a scene
familiar to almost every parent. You may feel embarrassed, angry, frustrated
or confused, but no matter what you’re feeling, you’re not alone. Tantrums
are a common occurrence for children between 18 months and 4 years old.
