Parents Who Work to Find the Humor in Temper Tantrums

Every parent, no matter how well-behaved their child is normally, knows it’s not a question of if – it’s a question of when your kids will throw a tantrum.

Your child will pitch a fit, probably at least a handful of times in public, so it’s important to prepare yourself ahead of time. Me? I practice repeating to myself “my child isn’t giving me a hard time, my child is having hard time.”

Does it work? Sort of.

These 12 parents know that one of the best defenses is simply being able to laugh at the absurdity of it all…and to know it will all be over soon enough.

12. It’s even more annoying like this, honestly.

Drum up some real feelings or get outta here.

11. It’s funny until you get to the last sentence.

Then it’s hilarious.

10. That’s an impressive train of thought for a toddler.

Seriously, my kid’s attention span would never have it.

9. That’s fairly terrifying.

As all toddlers can be at times.

8. Maybe being honest will work.

You’ve tried everything else.

7. Bless his heart.

They just have so many feelings.

6. Learning to manage your feelings is a lifelong task.

Be gentle with yourself.

5. I mean it probably will.

Gotta get those feelings out.

4. You can try to do both.

That’s a pretty complicated facial expression, though.

3. The solution is part of the problem.

Who could have guessed?

2. To be fair, I always try to convince myself I only need two pancakes, too.

Give the girl her pancakes.

1. That is a fair problem.

One easily solved, I suppose.


Ah, kids. They’re going to be just fine, you know?

These Parents Know the Best Way to Handle a Tantrum Is by Laughing

If there’s one thing that bonds the parents of toddlers together, it’s our experience handling meltdowns that make zero sense, and always occur when we have the least amount of time to devote to the crazy.

These 11 parents do their best to laugh at the whole sh%tshow, though, and I’ve gotta say, I think they’re onto something.

11. What kind of monster buys the kind without meatballs?

I mean. It’s hard to blame the kid here.

10. Getting a little closer every day.

Bless his heart.

9. This is a whole mood.

Life’s hard, kid.

8. The man is an expert.

Years of observation and experience.

7. Sophie’s Choice.

There’s no right answer. It all depends on the day.

6. God don’t like ugly.

Man, my kids are going to hate that phrase as much as I did.

5. He’s set a new record.

I bet his wife gave him a high-five.

4. Just take her mirrors away.

You’re not going to stop her sticking her tongue out.

3. Could have gone with her gut.

But you know. It would have gone bad either way.

2. No explanations necessary.

Let that be a lesson for everyone else, as well.

1. At least he’s honest.

And curious, too!

Laughter is, I think, one of the best tools in a parent’s emergency box. And if you don’t have laughter, well, raising a kid is going to be A LOT of tedious work that’s no fun. And nobody likes NOT having fun.

Tell us in the comments the funniest place your child has pitched a fit!
