Extreme Toddler Tantrums What’s Normal? What’s not?

Video taken from the channel: Walkie Talkie Speech Therapy Inc.

Most temper tantrums are not violent affairs but do involve lots of tears and yelling. Rest assured, your toddler is not going to be harmed by a little crying and all that yelling may yield a bit of hoarseness but not much more. For most toddlers, tantrums are a way to express frustration. For older children, tantrums might be a learned behavior. If you reward tantrums with something your child wants — or you allow your child to get out of things by throwing a tantrum — the tantrums are likely to continue.

Temper tantrums can make you question your parenting technique, but they’re actually a normal part of toddlerhood. Read about the causes of toddler tantrums, and learn how to. Help for Toddler Temper Tantrums Most parents dread the terrible twos, but the truth is that temper tantrums usually start much earlier. In fact, a child as young as one can have them, says Ari Brown, M.D., pediatrician and founder of 411 Pediatrics & After Hours Care in Austin, Texas.

Temper Tantrums: 2-3 Years. As toddlers grow, and become more aware of the world around them, they begin to assert themselves: wanting to be independent, doing things for themselves, and having firm ideas about what they want to do and what they don’t. This usually happens between 1-3 years of age when a toddler’s language and communication. If you think your baby’s tantrums are prolonged and bordering on out-of-control, or it takes a long time to calm her down, this might be something to discuss with your pediatrician, to ensure there isn’t a larger health-related problem. It’s possible for a child to want to hit or kick a caregiver out of frustration once in a while.

But when it happens in more than half of the child’s tantrums, there could be a problem. When to Worry. It is normal for children to experience 5 year old temper tantrums, but there are some signs to look for during a child’s fit that may require additional attention.

These warning signs can be seen in any child, but if they are present during every tantrum it. I understand that temper tantrums are relatively normal for many children. However, some children seem to have far more temper tantrums than other children their age, and others far fewer. Can. Temper tantrums facts.

Temper tantrums are a common behavior in children 2 to 4 years of age. While exasperating to parents, they reflect the toddler’s normal desire for independence coupled with the neurological immaturity (such as expressive language skills) found in this age range. Parents can effectively manage temper tantrums by remaining calm and objective and not.

  • THANK YOU! I am getting frustrated and I think my kid has a language delay. I’m getting him help for it, but it is harder with COVID. I feel terrible, because I would have him making lots of friends and interacting with other children more if not for the coronavirus concerns. I honestly don’t think it is healthy for child development to have to be isolated, but I don’t really have a choice. The video calls only do so much and I’ve been researching as much as I can to help him through this.

  • I didn’t even finish this video when I saw she was not going to “demonstrate” How to deal with an autistic child having a temper tantrum. Talk is cheap. I’m from Missouri, show me!

  • how i started to deal with my 4 year old autistic kid in public was to take him out every day, rather it was a local park, a mall or a zoo… i had always taken him to an open environment with lots of people so that he can learn to interact with people correctly..

  • My twins tantrum about 20 times a day each. Literaly anything will send them into a tantrum and nothing will work. Tried distracting, negotiating, punishing, explaining, rewarding..nothing works, i’m at the end of the rope with this..

  • My son is very articulate. Very intelligent. Was speaking better than every other child his age in his daycare. He has been very aggressive since he was a toddler. Biting, hitting. His father and I are not aggressive. His brother is not aggressive. He is not autistic. He is now 5 and still throws daily tantrums. Any advice?

  • I have learned to just say “My emotional state is extremely hectic, I have alexithymia and cannot pinpoint exactly what I feel but I believe it is either frustration or rage, but is definitely on the “fear” end of the “love/fear” continuum. I HAVE no coping skills left am completely drained, and I DESPERATELY need a solution NOW!!”

  • My daughter is having tantrums but normal controllable.My main concern is she is more obsessed to drawing but other games or play she is ok, she can do transition.If I tell her to stop drawing,sometimes she will do,if I scold her some times she shows tantrums,hitting herself.hitting others,hitting her doll and it last for 10 minutes.Once or twice in a week.sometimes when she see small kids,she will to pinch or hit them slowly.She likes kids and other people,likes to play with them and mingle with them.she is very intellectual and having good motor skills but she is speech delayed,ask me her needs and wants.she knows how to behave in social gatherings and having good receptive language.we didn’t enrolled her in a daycare and she is the only kid in the house.Iam worried,next year dhe is going to kinder garden.

  • Loving approaches work the best, and joining in HIS activities is huge. My son has made huge progress…Thanks to so much real support and LOVE out there!

  • I’m so worry my son is only 1 year old and suddenly his staring being frustrated angry so so mad that gets red anything that he wants or touch him etc ��

  • I am still confused with my son, he has frequent tantrums but they don’t last long. Although last night it was he was overtired. Can that be normal? It’s typically being overtired or not getting what he wants. He also hits but not all the time I thought this somewhat normal at 2-3 years old?

  • Thank you for this video, it helped me to confirm that my daughter’s occasional tantrum is normal. My daughter does have some language delay because she is learning both German (in daycare) and English (at home) and that these intense tantrums will get better.

  • My 2 year old daughter holds her body stiff while crying n throwing this normal?can she sucking her fingers for comfort cause speech delay

  • How would you solve a problem when a parent is struggling to communicate what her child wants. My niece is 22 months old with developmental speech delays. She will grunt and cry to get what she needs and wants, for example after being put down, she will cry to be picked up, or seeing mom pull out phone she will cry and grunt to play with phone, n mom feels sad to see her child frustrated not being able to express herself so she gives in immediately. Any great home speech therapy ideas for her child to be able to express herself n decrease her tantrums? She will not sign, she will get upset more when the ST tries to teach her sign

  • My son is 2 years old is aggressive only when he is in daycare. Per his teacher he hits without no reason to other kids. He just started with his ST. My son is on a waiting list for OT. Any advice.

  • This advice is not for children on the spectrum. Who is this person? Howcast needs to re-do this video with someone who specializes in ABA therapy or a child neurologist who specializes in autism.

  • OMG I just saw the doctor on this video for my son’s consult all she does is to yawn in front of me like really she should take a nap or something! lol

  • My son is yes to all those except stemming. He’s on speech therapy but I’ve noticed something odd. Before he started therapy he rarely spoke mostly babble if that but he was very independent. He would always attempt to get what he wanted or if it was physically impossible he would ask by taking u to the kitchen or standing where he knows u hid the cookies. Now at 22 months old he very very very clingy. Sometimes refuses to feed himself. Yes his tantrums were intense before but know they’re constant and at times for no reason. Instead of attempting to ask for what he wants he cries and acts hysterical even hitting. However he is starting to move past mindless babble and attempt words sometimes with success. His understanding was at a 9 month level when he was 18 months but I do feel he has improved in that area as well. Not sure what to do as he has become unruly. Right now I try 30 second time outs, doing my best to keep a schedule and attempting to empathise but he once he gets worked up he seems to have almost no ability to calm back down. Any advice it would be greatly appreciated???

  • I do not find these cute or funny. Our society has become sick with this baby worship idea the children be allowed to do just as they please no matter what. They do not meld into the family structure and the family is required to accommodate them.

  • The seconds one isnt exactly a tantrum it’s mainly just a grown up laughing at young defenseless children and taking things of them

  • I have a 2 year old that has violent tantrums, hitting with objects and attempting to really harm his siblings. He can speak a little but his temper is short and he have cried for hours until I picked him up. I have a 10 month old as well and he copies his brother’s tantrums as well. How can I fix this?

  • My child who is 4 Years old is non verbal and always tantrum when we are in the shops food court section. Whenever we go there to eat, our son always cries. It’s so frustrating

  • That little girl crying about Hillary losing the election is the same girl who wanted her mom to get rid of the cats they already had to get three new kittens that could play ��

  • My neighbors autistic kid was expelled for beating and stomping a boy and girl on the playground today. He’s five! About a month ago he killed a baby bird because it would not be his friend. Lil demon child!

  • Currently watching. My son just calmed down a bit and it’s been an hour and 15 min of non stop tantrum. Does anyone know if it could be autistic related?

  • I couldn’t with some of these kids. They needed a good old fashion butt whipping. That’s the trouble with alot of kids today, parents are scared to discipline their children so in return the kids rule the house. Out here robbing people, doing drugs, killing all because they was never taught right from wrong, or that if you do the crime you will be punished. They think their invincible.

  • I have anxiety and panic attacks and flashbacks PTSD because of my past and I have two panic attacks everyday at school and one at home ones a day

  • How to sensibly buy LEGAL cbd oil that can help manage autism symptoms? Because I got a letter saying customs has confiscated my package two times already and I’m pissed.

  • Give the person a really heavy object to throw, punch, bend or smash (into pieces, for best physical relief). That or distract him/her, kind of like Inception you plant another thought. It’s the same action and chaos in the brain in both cases �� And equally difficult to change it.

  • I think that instead of taking our children away to a facility where someone else teaches them they should train parents with children with autism to learn them selves on how to help them it is unfair that they want to take young children and have someone else train them it shouldn’t be that way

  • i like nice smells aswell I scream when I feel people are depriving me off something just because they thing im disabled is it always a trantrum is that fair even when the autism person or aspie person like me feels there being tormented

  • i learn by seeing and doing so i need someone to show me what to do. My son screams if i don’t let him play with my phone, once he gets the phone he throws it when he gets frustrated with, its a cycle that repeats so if i stop giving him the phone its not going to stop the screaming.

  • I have autism and this actually quite useful. I get frustrated quite easily and before I went to a autistic-friendly school I was an easy target for bullies. Not only do I find letting my frustrations out hard, I also find decisions hard too! Trust me!

  • Make sure it’s not a meltdown tantrums are different but can be mixed upped and most of what your saying is symptoms of a meltdown and can’t be helped it’s not like when a kid misbehave it’s uncomfortable and awful so make Sure you work out if it’s a meltdown or a tantrum ��

  • I’m father of an autistic girl, and everytime she throws a tantrum, I feel like killing her.
    Can you love and wish death for your daughter at the same time?
    Yes, it is possible.

  • my child is 18 months, and his speech is very good. Alot better then other kids his age. But he still has alot of tantrums. He is always talking back, got attitude, and will on purpose do the opposite of what I ask. I dont know where all this attitude comes from. He is the youngest of 4 kids, he has 3 older sisters aged 12,11,and 10 years old so he is spoit and gets lots of attention. he is super bossy, likes to scream and cry when he doesnt get his way and hits. He is very clever for his age and has a big vocabulary for his age. arggg just so frustrating with his attitude and tantrums.

  • My LO will be 2 years old in two months he doesn’t throw tantrums often but he will sometimes hit himself or bang his head on the floor. How do I help him?

  • my wee nephew has autism he threw 2 tantrums he hit my sister my dad and he was going mad he was wanting to get out the car,from what my young 6 year old niece said (his twin sister) said he bit her when he got mad and just threw a tantrum and he climbed over the seat and tried to get out the door. The 2nd one We didn’t go on the motorway so he threw a tantrum saying “mum, i’m taking off my seat-belt” and then my sis said go on but you will get me thrown in jail. I told her to pull over because i felt sick. My very young niece aged 4 was at the front window while my sister was in the middle controlling my nephew and he bit her arm and my 4 r old niece was just crying at the window it was rolled down so dad carried her out she was cuddling his legs ;( we where both crying it was so scary, at one point my dad had to hold him when he was trying to get out the car and my sis pulled him down back into the car and rolled up the window enough so he can’t get out and hurt himself he sat in the front seat and that makes him calm down. When he calms down my sis will usually try to make him laugh and make him happy and when we get back he runs to his room it’s like his house my 6 yr old niece told me. I don’t mind it all and I know he doesn’t mean it and it’s not his fault at all.

  • My son is 6 year old, has autism and right after school when we pick him up, he would run towards train station which is close by, he has great liking for trains, earlier we used to take him to train station within the city was ok, but now he would like to take train to the airport and would like to fly, if we dont do and tell him no, he would have ”tantrums” he would go to extent of pulling our hair, sometime we have to lure him by telling him that we would give him candy or mobile phone to play with etc. but this has started causing problem now. Does anyone have any suggestions? my son has very limited verbal skills, we have several time used cards, but he would not look at them, would throw them in the air.

  • Hi, what can be some possible reasons that a child is having a tantrums as extreme as you mentioned in your video, or for the reasons that you mentioned? Thank you

  • Shame on these parents!! IDIOTIC PARENTS FILM THEIR KIDS FRUSTRATIONS & FITS Thank GOD I had parents who cared. Western parents doing their thing Spoiling their kids with toys instead of CARE!!

  • My 3-year-old daughter has always had and still has tantrum episodes every single day. It’s humiliating. Bedtime is so stressful EVERY DAY! And this is not the only time she is out of control. I have tried it all; routine, stories, positive reinforcement, games, etc., still, nothing works. We can’t figure it out…we would appreciate your input… I’m all ears!!! Thanks!!!

  • Y’all tripping. Here’s an ancient technique passed down through the ages developed by the first of human kind and perfected throughout the generations.

  • What really needs to happen is for parents AND teachers to be on the same page, by teaching self regulation skills. It’s called “conscious discipline.” You see your child is having a hard time. You get down to their level and “listen to them” (if they’re capable of talking, and “study their body behavior.” Tell them what their facial expressions look like (“I see your face is frowning and your eye brows are lowered. You must be having a really hard time. Let’s show that we can be STARs (Stop, Take a deep breath, And Relax). Do you remember how we can be STAR’s? Let’s do it together. We are calming our bodies. Breathe in…. Breathe out. You are a STAR. You are Important. You are SAFE.”) Repeat the breathing exercises until they are no longer needed. If they like hugs, ask them if they need one. Do not tell them how they are feeling because you may misinterpret their face. When they’ve calmed down, do not punish them. They have already had their consequence. The true consequence is the emotional feeling they’ve already felt. In their mind, they’re probably thinking, “I shouldn’t have drawn on the wall, but I did it anyway. Now I have to clean it up.” Follow through with the clean up process, once the child has calmed their body.
    This technique should be used with parents of all sorts of children because self-regulation, just isn’t taught or practiced at typical preschools and public schools. When children learn to sooth themselves and can say, “I feel mad, but I know I can handle this,” you’ve created a confident child, AND a happy home.

  • I’m very glad hear it. If the tantrum is still in the normal category, does it have to be dealt with immediately or let it quiet down by itself?

  • what if you have “tantrums” as an adult? i wish that there were more examples and resources for adults on the spectrum, especially for females of all ages.

  • The reasons why kids with the autism spectrum have a tantrum. It’s a special argument with the autism
    Spectrum that is called the
    Issic machine. All right with
    A hit it can make
    A child make a loud noise like voice levels. And even noisy guys.the tantrum has 2 colored faces to hit with red and pink the common of these
    2 are the red ones not much different than a meltdown
    Next is pink checks those
    Hits hit slower they won’t hit a BCBA. With limted experience.
    Hit any therapist that have to contact with Even a coach
    Then restrain that client.
    Put the clip to consequence let the child be in time out and be grounded. Also block YouTube and safari and the App Store on you electronic for meltdowns if you want to see it checkout the other episodes or go to http://www.optimized autism audrey Gifford at oai to see the video

  • The we girl who had a hair on her arm/ sleeve is not throwing a tantrum. My cousin use to be particular about things been on him and going into full blown meltdowns until he was diagnosed with autism and other things. Very similar to the we girl shown in the video at 9:32

  • dont know what this ls lady is talking about but we do not have tamtrems we have sensery overload and that is what causes the blackouts

  • The little girl in 5:42 thru 7:09 is exactly how most of America feels right now. Trust me, It’s 2020 right now and we’re still crying like her. ����

  • I have Autism and it’s not always the case of some bothering me at the moment, it could be something that is from a week or few days after the trauma has happened. That cause to tantrum.

  • It’s Not A Tantrum It’s Meltdown It’s More Of A Sensory Overloads Or Social Barriers So If You Take Your Child To A Store And They Break Into Pieces It’s Either They Are Spoilt Or Their social overloads get to the best of them

  • how i started to deal with my 4 year old autistic kid in public was to take him out every day, rather it was a local park, a mall or a zoo… i had always taken him to an open environment with lots of people so that he can learn to interact with people correctly..

  • Tantrum is spoiled bratt behaviour. Is controlled. And usually in need for an audience. Autism or no autism. Meltdown is sensoric overload. Out of controle. The person lost controle over their own behaviour. There is a world of diffrence. This woman clearly has no clue.

  • The term “tantrum” is misleading since it conflates the underlying causes in allistic & autistic individuals. “Meltdown” better describes where the situation is undesirable by all parties and is not under the individual’s control.

  • When an autistic kid is in sensory overload IGNORING THEM IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST THING TO DO instead give them stim toys (blocks, playdogh etc)

  • Hear hear, and why does everyone ask the childless when are you going to have kids. I didn’t know I needed to, is it not enough people on earth. Oh and where did I place all my disposable income. Right here next to my paid for car keys attached to my mortgage free house keys. I’m good.

  • All of these videos seem to be really….really misguided.
    If your autistic child is having a tantrum, please please please PLEASE make sure it is not a meltdown FIRST.
    Meltdowns are way different than tantrums. They’re physically painful, totally exhausting and out of the child’s control.
