Most of us would agree that temper tantrums just might be the bane of every parent's existence. Moms, in particular, know how stressful and challenging it is to calm down a crying child who's about to have a meltdown.
Xaxa Hizon, Faith Chong, and Toni Buenaventura know this all too well, so we asked them to play a game of "Guilty or Not Guilty." The goal? To reveal both the good and not-so-good methods they use when dealing with their children's emotional outbursts.
As these moms note, taking the time to listen and understand your children is an essential part of adequately responding to any emotional distress. Staying calm and controlling your own temper is just as important.
Don't allow yourself to be overwhelmed when a temper tantrum happens. Granted, it comes with the territory, but it will in no way stop your children from growing up smart with a heart.[ads:4]
