Set Limit With As Little Emotion As Possible

While totally exasperating, tantrums and pushing the limits signal a leap in your child’s development. ⁠ 
💡 Set your limit with as little emotion (and as few words) as possible. The more matter of fact you can be, the better. Talk in a low, steady voice and be aware of the nonverbal messages you’re sending with your facial expression and body language. Using a kind and compassionate tone can be calming to your child. (And, it’s also a way to soothe yourself during a stressful time.)⁠
