Toddler tantrums gets on your nerve at times…and I really mean it! I dont know who named this stage as a Terrible-Two, but it gets really terrible. Shriya is no exception. Giving her a time-out or not talking to her or ignoring her – while she throws a tantrum – works! These days, I just let her cry it out and I won’t try to stop it. I can very well tell when she’s faking it or when she really means it.

Asking for more candy, wanting to play with neighbor kids more, not letting us change from her Curious George time – these are all her “frequent” tantrums…Those times I just tell myself, these shall pass too!
