Handling Tantrums Like a Pro with Dr. Laura Markham

I LOVE tantrums.

Crazy, right?

Wanna know why?

Because tantrums are kids’ (and often adults’) very clear way of saying:

“STOP THE BUS! I need to get off!”

It’s such a helpful, clear cut reminder that our child’s needs are somehow not being met: their need for food, drink, sleep or connection. When seen in this way, tantrums become our friends.

We can secretly thank the tantrum fairy “Ooooh, thanks for the (crying, screaming, arm flailing) sticky note… I totally get now that my child needs x, y or z. Lucky me that you, dear tantrum fairy, are here to cover my derrière.”

OK, I get it, tantrums are my friend and emotional health co-conspirator… but what about when my 4 year old has cemented herself as a permanent fixture of the Trader Joe’s cereal aisle, and is giving everyone something to look at (or should we say, listen to)?

Watch my Oscar-worthy 3-year-old performance of 2 types of major MELT DOWNS and see how Dr. Laura Markham handles it like the pro that she is! We can all take a few leafs out of her book!

Spoiler alert: she doesn’t do much talking.

This one is a little longer than we usually do but it’s worth watching until the end. You’ll see two different ways of handling a whiny melt down or a full blown tantrum, and you’ll hear Dr. Laura’s helpful insights about fight, flight or freeze mode.

What is your approach to tantrums?

Now look, we’re all tired of the over-inflated results that course creators are flaunting on the interwebs. We’re all suspicious of online courses actually delivering on all their bloated promises. So if you think, “Bah, just another expensive course I don’t need” - I feel you, I do. I take the same wary approach when buying new programs. ⁣

But that’s why I want to share real human beings from all walks of life who have actually been through this course and received meaningful and priceless renewals in their relationships. ⁣

Like Chelsea, who remarked: “When I joined Parent in Love, I was ready to give up on my marriage. Today, my marriage has had a complete overhaul! It's practically a different marriage altogether.”⁣

Or Tanya, who reported: "This course has ABSOLUTELY TRANSFORMED our marriage, our family life, and my own personal growth journey! We still fight, but the fights are fewer and we tend to make up quicker and in front of the kids now!"⁣

And here's what Jonna said: "I have tools that give me hope and I know how to start resolving our conflicts. I have started to notice how my own shift of thoughts changes the whole atmosphere in our home, not only between me and my hubby but with the kids also."⁣

Ever find yourself waiting for your partner to change? Sometimes, it feels easier alone. ⁣

As much as you want and need the support - I know sometimes it can just feel easier to run your home on your own. ⁣

No one criticizing. ⁣
No one judging. ⁣
No one commenting. ⁣
No one watching. ⁣
No one adding to your to-do list with their needs.⁣
No one irritating you.⁣

Ah. Bliss. ⁣

But did you ever have these thoughts only to then think: "Yikes! That's not really what I want, is it? What's wrong with me? What's wrong with us!?"⁣

And what has waiting for your partner to change gotten you so far? ⁣

Stop waiting... ⁣

You deserve to have a happy marriage, and your kids deserve to have happy parents. ⁣

And don't wait on your partner, because the Parent In Love program is DESIGNED to be done alone - so that YOU can focus on what YOU can change: yourself.⁣

Your partner will necessarily be affected by the changes you make - because that's how relationships work, we're intertwined like that. ⁣

So TAKE A BREAK trying to change your partner right now, and finally, start to see some real transformation. ⁣

Psst... Your partner doesn't even have to KNOW you're doing the program - not that I'm suggesting you hide this from them, especially if you two are used to discussing financial investments you make - but I DO want you to know that many members have gone through Parent In Love WITHOUT letting their partners know about it. ⁣

And what happened? ⁣

Well, typically their partner would suddenly begin to NOTICE a profound (wonderful!) shift in their relationship and wonder "what's going on?!" ⁣

If you really want to take this program but you're struggling to work through their concerns, especially about the $ investment, I've provided scripts to help you have those important conversations with confidence. ⁣
