40 Ways to Prevent Tantrums

Page 4

Ask your kids questions that will get their imagination in gear.

  • What do you want to do for your next birthday party?
  • Where would you rather be right now?
  • What would you change your name to if you could?
  • What do you think the world would be like if there were no such thing as money?
  • What would happen if dogs were in charge and people were their pets?

Stock your handbag with:

  • Modeling clay in a sandwich bag
  • Crayons and a small pad
  • Stickers
  • A mini tape measure
  • Wikki Sticks (inexpensive, bendable, waxy sticks for creating sculptures or letters)
  • A short piece of rope with a big knot to pick loose
  • Windup toys
  • Post-it notes
  • A small flashlight
  • An unbreakable mirror
