Temper tantrums are most common between 2 and 4 years of age. They can be as short as 20 seconds or go on for hours. Practice positive discipline in managing your child’s behaviour.

During a temper tantrum, your child may run around screaming and yelling, bang their head, pound their fists, kick and bite, cry and roll around on the floor. Your child may also hold their breath. Don’t worry if this happens, children will naturally breathe when they need to.

Temper tantrums are your child’s way of showing anger and frustration.
