What is the best way to deal with children’s tantrum?
In a research and study by a group of scientist last 2011, it suggests that two emotions, anger and sadness, have different behavioral manifestations and different time courses within tantrums. The best way to deal with children’s temper tantrum was to get the child past the peaks of anger and the quickest way past the anger was to do nothing. Once the child was past being angry, what was left was sadness, and sad children reach out for comfort.
