Books for Coping with Temper Tantrums

We’ve all been there. You’re out and about and something happens. You look at them the wrong way, you pick the wrong color sippy cup, you grab the wrong jacket, and the ultimate meltdown begins. And you’re left trying to control the crazy.

If you’ve experienced a temper tantrum storm at your house or out in public where it ALL hangs out, this could be the list for you.

And good luck!
