Tantrum vs Meltdown

But first, cuddle them tightly before they grow up and don’t want to cuddle anymore.

Pandemic seems to be here for a long time now and it’s been over a year since the kids have been home. It’s as hard for the kids like it is for us. There will be days when we, parents will be tired, there will be days when we don’t want to homeschool anymore, there will be days when the kids drive you up the wall. Always remember, it’s ok to react but also remember they are kid’s and this is as frustrating and new for them as it is for you and me. We can unwind by watching Netflix or going out for a drive but they can’t do anything other than have a meltdown and or throw a tantrum.

Tantrums and meltdowns are among the biggest challenges of parenting. They’re hard to understand, hard to prevent, and even harder to respond to effectively when they’re happening. A tantrum is a mild outburst where the child retains some part of his behavior. This means that a tantrum might subside on its own if a parent does not pay attention to the behavior.

This is exactly the opposite of what meltdown is where a child completely loses control over his behavior and the parent is unable to calm them down. Be it milf or severe, tantrums show that the child I struggling in dealing with their emotions. Anxiety is another big trigger that causes children to freak out.

There are many reasons for a meltdown. They can be due to anxiety, depression, ADHD, learning problems, autism, depression, and sensory processing difficulties. According to experts the most common reason for an outbreak is difficulties in problem-solving, negotiating, impulse control, self-soothing, expressing themselves to an adult, not knowing what to expect, and getting overwhelmed.

If you ever think that tantrums are beyond control, don’t hesitate to talk to an expert and taking advice. Mental health is as important for a child as it is for an adult.
