Taming The Tantrums - Part 2
May 22, 2019

I hope you were able to watch our online parenting class on Taming the Tantrums.

Today we’re going to continue the conversation by reading some encouraging Scripture.

Listen to what Ephesians 4:26 says about tantrums: “In your anger do not sin…”  Here are two lessons we can learn from this Scripture to help with the tantrums our children have.

1. Preschoolers WILL get angry. As children grow and develop opinions and desires of their own, they will inevitably get irritated when things don’t go their way or when you “mess up” their plan. We cannot expect them to be happy and “roll with the flow” all of the time, especially when it is difficult for us as adults to follow that rhythm.
2. It should be the parent’s mission to assist their preschooler in navigating through their anger. Part of the parent’s job is to help them work through their feelings and teach them how to respond appropriately when feelings of anger arise.

One way to do this best is by setting a good example for them in how you respond during frustrating situations.
So as you are engaging your kids today, don’t forget that each tantrum is a teaching moment for them to learn to portray self-control in how they communicate their anger.
