Temper tantrums are not a pretty sight. The whining, screaming and snotting over things can drive even the most patient of parents into a hopeless despair. Even though they are at the very edge of losing their sanity, they always hope that one day their child will get out of it and the antics would be a thing of the past.
However, even after the 4th birthday, the meltdowns keep occuring, stronger than ever before. This leads the parents to think, “Is my child normal?” “Do we need to get some professional help?” The answer to this is yes and no.
Temper tantrums at age 4 usually mean that the child has some fears locked up inside. In such instances, parents need to give the child a safe way to vent out the emotions.
