Ask yourself, “Is my child hungry?”
Does my child need something physically or emotionally? Try to find out what will fill that need.
Ask yourself, “Is my child angry?”
What is causing my child to feel this way? Encourage your child to express their feelings.
Ask yourself, “Is my child lonely?”
Is my child having difficulty connecting with others? Talk about it and ask questions.
Ask yourself, “Is my child tired?”
Does my child need a nap or some quiet time? If your child doesn’t want to sleep try lying down with them.
Remember to HALT and check that basic needs are met as the first response to fixing unwanted behaviors such as tantrums and meltdowns.
