When Things Go Wrong: Toddler Temper Tantrums

You’ve been there before. Casually minding your business in the checkout line at Target when suddenly you hear the loudest, blood-curdling scream of your life. You turn around and you see this small child lying on the ground, kicking his feet, and having a complete melt-down.

Friends, that is called a temper tantrum. Famous to 2- and 3-year old children worldwide. No parent escapes it and most parents can’t even predict them.

You’re a babysitter. You have zero parenting experience. What exactly are you supposed to do when this charming little girl who looks at you with adoration in her eyes and says, “I luh you!” turns into a crazed monster because you gave her the purple cup instead of the pink cup?

I’m the Babysitter Boss. I’ve got you covered! Watch this video to learn what you need to do. And then watch it again, take a few notes, and remember: the tantrum will eventually end. I promise!
