Description

Have you ever wondered why your child randomly loses their mind over the smallest things? You’re going along, everyone is happy and thriving, and then a pea touches the potatoes and it seems like the world has caught on fire. 

Believe it or not, there’s nothing wrong with your peas or potatoes, and there’s also likely nothing wrong with your child. 

Dr. Rebecca Hershberg is a Clinical Psychologist, Parenting Coach, Author and Public Speaker, who has been helping parents with their kids and vice versa for more than two decades. She is the author of The Tantrum Survival Guide and has been published widely, including the New York Times, Parents.com and Today Parents.

She’s joining me today to talk all about parenting through tantrums, no matter the age. Because it’s also completely normal for your teen and young adult children to have tantrums as well. Listen in to learn more about how your child’s brain works and develops.

 

In this episode, we discuss: 

What tantrums are and what they mean.

How to work through tantrums as a parent.

Why tantrums occur, no matter what the age.
