Quick tips 1,2 and 3 have all dealt with different ways to deal with a toddler who is throwing a tantrum. Quick tip number four takes a further - and can be a lot of too - especially when they get a little older, like 18.
No it's photo's but you're close - it's the video camera. Once your little one decides things aren't going their way and throws a tantrum, switch the video on and tape them. Make it obvious too. Tape about five minutes worth, then, if they are still carrying on - play the tape back on the TV. If you didn't get their attention taping them, you will certainly get it playing the tape back.
Every time they start to throw another tantrum, put the video on - at the same time, grab the video camera and start recording again. You will be surprised at how many toddlers suddenly become camera shy and stop the tantrums.
I hope you had a great Christmas and hopefully the 2010 will be a happy, safe and profitable year for everyone.
