Dealing with Temper Tantrums

From the Preschool Mindfulness Summit – Dr. Rick Hanson

What does the science say?

  • slow it down – buy yourself some time
  • “train” before the “oatmeal flies” (Do what you need to do before the tantrum to learn skills and strategies and take care of yourself.)
  • focus on the actual issue
  • move into “repair”
  • the bigger the challenge, the bigger the resources/supports need to be
  • one-to-one special time with each child, each day
