A - Z Taming Tantrums |

Hi – Andrea Nair here! Welcome back to the A to Z of Taming Tantrums video series. This video is about the letter T, and T is for Taking Time for Teaching.

When toddlers receive clear, short, sequential instructions, they are much more likely to do what you ask of them. This means breaking your request into small “bite sized” pieces of information that are provided in a logical, sequential order.

Please watch this video to learn more:

Taking time for teaching is phrase that was coined by Alfred Adler, a well-known child psychotherapist/ medical doctor who founded the school of individual psychology. If you would like to read more about Adler, please click here to read his Child Guidance Principles.

Thank you for continuing to watch this series, and I invite you to look for our next video, which is for the letter U, and U is for "Understand!" 

We're so excited to share with you the A to Z of Taming Tantrums video series! 

Each week we'll share the next letter of the alphabet and Andrea will discuss how it relates to reducing tantrums - and improve our experience as parents! You can view each video here as they are added each Friday.
