Temper Tantrums

Temper Tantrums

Throwing temper tantrums are a part of normal childhood development and through this they are also able to communicate their feelings to their parents or guardians, in socially acceptable ways.

These usually start when they are a year old and continue until they are toddlers.

When children witness a parent in a state of anxiety, they can become unsettled, because they take information about how to interpret situations from the parent.

If you notice your child shows anxious behaviors, don't punish yourself for it. Implement strategies to help ensure you do not pass your anxiety on to your kids.

According to Sigmund Freud, mental disorders and destructive behavior patterns are more or less related to our inner child, which most of us fail to see directly.

Our inner child needs to be acknowledged, accepted, nurtured and loved, instead of being denied, neglected, abandoned and rejected.

Fear of abandonment can come from childhood loss or neglect as a child, especially if it is more emotional.

Brain development is the process of creating, strengthening, and discarding connections among the neurons. The growth of each region of the brain depends largely on receiving stimulation. By not attending to that stimulation, your body can't function properly.

The remedy to fear of abandonment in your relationship is to work on exercising that "attachment muscle," allowing yourself to become more vulnerable and open with your partner.
