I was recently asked to be a part of this article on dealing with tantrums in tweenagers over at mom.me. This was a new site to me, and it seems pretty cool – with lots of good info. I got to participate in the discussion with one of my favorite psychologists, Dr. David Palmiter whose blog and book (Working Parents, Thriving Families) are some of my favorites. (In fact, if you check out the reviews of the book here, you will see mine in the list!)
Anyway, when Alison Bell contacted me about doing a story on tween tantrums – rather than the typical toddler tantrums – I thought she was brilliant! So many parents struggle with this issue, and most of us think we are alone. Clearly, we are not. Many kids ages 7-12 have tantrums, and the article offers super solutions for parents. My faves? “Catch Them Early” and “One-on-One Time.”
Thanks for including me, mom.me!
