Follow my blog with Bloglovin I took Jack for lunch earlier this week and I was stunned when he started recounting a holiday we went on well over a year ago. He would have just turned two-years-old at the time, but he was very insistent that he remembered ‘splashing’ in the sea, playing with the Barbies in the caravan and going to the ‘noisy bit’ (slot machines). It reminded me that the happy memories of holidays last a lifetime. This is why holidays have been called “happiness anchors” and crucial for our children’s emotional development.
Like most mums, my stress levels can at times, go through the roof. Whether we are on a day out, eating dinner, putting on shoes, potty training; the threat of a toddler meltdown is always looming.

However, according to experts, the first step to managing tantrums is to understand what might be causing them.
