Are you a parent who is tired of dealing with your child's tantrums? Have you ever paused and wondered what triggers your child to throw tantrums? Well, one of the common reasons why most children throw tantrums is to act out their emotions and show their displeasure with certain things. It is also possible that a child is feeling irritable for no good reason at all. However, if one digs deeper, it is possible, one will always be able to find out reasons for a child acting out in a certain way. It is also possible that children throw tantrums, because they feel upset or angry about how their parents behaved with them.
Listed below are some things that parents do that make a child throw tantrums around. Take a look at them.

Use of harsh language and tone

One of the things that parents need to understand is that the way they conduct with a child is going to have a bearing on their child’s behaviour as well. So if you speak to a child in a harsh tone and use harsh words with them, it is likely to trigger them into throwing tantrums as a sign of their displeasure with you.

When your behaviour is not consistent with your child

One of the things that parents need to be cognisant of is that their inconsistent behaviour with their child can actually end up confusing them and triggering an emotional outburst in them.
Let’s say, if one day you did not say anything to your child for watching television right after school and on the other, you lambasted them for doing so. This is going to end up making a child feel confused with respect to what is acceptable and what’s not. This is why parents need to be consistent with their behaviour and establish clear guidelines and boundaries with their children.

When you engage in favouritism

If a child feels that you are constantly drawing comparison of them with others, or if you are favouring the other sibling more than them, it is likely to trigger them into throwing tantrums. When a child throws a tantrum, parents often mistake it as unruly behaviour without a cause. However, sometimes tantrums are just a way through which children act out and express their emotions.

When you do not give attention to your child

Children can do a lot of things to seek attention from their parents. And if you choose to ignore all of them and carry on with your day's work, then it can really spark a fury in children. They can feel neglected, disrespected and belittled. In such situations, one of the ways they act out their emotions is by throwing tantrums around. So, whenever your child throws a tantrum again, you must always try to find out if your behaviour led them to react a certain way.

When a parent becomes too controlling of a child

Another reason why your child may be throwing a tantrum is because they feel that they have no voice and autonomy to exercise their choices. If a child is constantly being told what to do and what not to do, it can make them feel irritable and stifled. It can lead to pent-up resentment in them which they may channelise from time to time by throwing tantrums.
