The aftermath

   

 - The aftermath
There’s no point analyzing a toddler’s behavior with them. But it is worth asking yourself what you can learn from the tantrum. Had they eaten recently? Did they need a nap? Were you actually being a bit strict?

It’s also important to let them know that you’re not angry with them, nothing has changed and despite them throwing a strop that could rival one from Big Brother’s Nikki, you still love them.
 
‘Have a cuddle and move on,’ says Joanne, you know your three-year-old isn’t going to dwell on it. 

Joanne's final tip? "Maybe treat yourself to that emergency stash of gin."

Sounds like good advice to us.
