Well, lots of people claim that, you must let your baby understand that, she is doing it wrong. But I would say, no. Rather, you can try to visualize the feeling, which she is facing right now and can act as a mirror. You may tell her, “I’ve been gone through your situation and realizing what you’re feeling now”. So in this way, you’re trying to provide your baby the opportunity to make her feel that, “yes, my parents understand me well in all situations, and they care about me too”. This little sensible trick really works. You may not give them the thing what they demand but providing them with the empathetic feeling about yourself.

Afterwards, parents may also follow up by boosting up baby’s confidence, which definitely will be helpful for her in the long run.

This depends on your imagination and your child’s response with it.    


Distracting from present scenario to any positive one can be another effective way to keep your baby under control. You have to divert them in such a way so that she won’t understand what is happening.

Being quiet

Sometimes, if you remain calm during child’s anger or impatient moment, this also works as a remedy to tackle the situation. The more you would become louder to your child; there is a strong chance that your child may become more upset.

This may lead to tranquilize the nerve system of the child that helps her to become calm.
