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. There’s calming glitter jars, and time out chairs and reward charts, and caught you being good jars, but how about a book before bed? Read below for a list of books for coping with temper tantrums. And good luck!
You Get What You Get by Julie A. Gassman
And you don’t get upset. You know you’ve all said it.
Finn Throws a Fit by David Elliot
Turning around a wrong side of the bed type of day.
Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems
A perfect portrayal of a preschool tantrum. And as one who has read Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed many times at bedtime, I can vouch for how awesome this author is.
Llama Llama Mad at Mama by Anna Dewdney
First he misses her, then he’s mad at her. Sounds about right from a mood swing perspective.
The Berenstain Bears Get the Screamies by Stan and Jan Berenstain
We love the Berenstain Bears. And they have one for JUST about everything. In fact, whenever something comes up with the kids, I often wonder if a Berenstain Bears book might be available to cover it.
Tessa Tiger’s Temper Tantrums by Barbara deRubertis
This tiger is NOT a fan of losing in T-ball.
