Parenting Vlog Question: Dealing with Kids’ Tantrums– and Your Own Tantrums


My first vlog question, courtesy of reader Lizzie Ann!

How do you keep a 2-year-old from pitching a fit when she doesn’t get what she wants…more importantly, how do I keep myself from pitching a fit when I don’t get what I want?

  1. Thanks, Margaret! No, I don’t really cry and pitch a fit when I don’t get what I want. Although, it has been hard learning that things aren’t just given to you. I’ve been married for almost 7 years, and almost 6 years ago is when I started to realize that I actually have to work to get something. Yes, I grew up as a spoiled brat.

    Thanks for the tips about the 2year old! She is so much like me it scares me. lol
