Tantrums are Communication

Charlotte Snyder


Children are always communicating, and Tantrums Are Communication! Why do children have tantrums? Am I CAUSING tantrums? How can I help a child who is having tantrums? Are tantrums inevitable? In this presentation, I’ll unpack these questions and more. You’ll learn tools for dealing with tantrums, how to see tantrums as communication, and how to support your child and your relationship.
