Most parents of toddlers and preschoolers are very familiar with tantrums—those epic meltdowns that seem to come out of nowhere. Even though tantrums are part of “normal” toddler behavior, they are maddening, stressful, and exhausting. What can parents do to help everyone step back and calm down? With candor and wit, Rebecca Schrag Hershberg, clinical psychologist and mother of two, explains why tantrums occur and what parents might unintentionally be doing to encourage them.

She offers a customizable plan for nipping blowups in the bud while fostering healthy development and deeper parent-child connections. Imagine family life with equal measures of love and limits—and less stress.

Dr. Hershberg is a clinical psychologist who specializes in early childhood social-emotional development and mental health.
