My 3 year old, like all other 3 year-olds, can sometimes go into a real tantrum. So, when I’m about to either lose it and get very angry at her or just give up and let her do whatever she wants, I stop and breath and recite this mantra in my head – “Be tough but kind”. It helps me relax and focus so that I can calmly stick to my rules and not get excited by the tantrum, while staying in control without giving up or losing it on her.
