Tantrums in children mostly manifest themselves between the ages of 1 and 2 years.

The best approach to an angry child is not to get angry with the child, that is, to keep our calm. Think of it this way, you have a child crying out loud and you get angry with him and you start shouting at him. So does this work? No, on the contrary, the child starts to accumulate anger against the person who does not understand and responds to him with anger, and this accumulated anger zammoment turns into outbursts of anger. What you're going to do is let him experience his anger, set limits on his behavior, not his emotion, so how? For example; By saying, "You don't want to collect your toys, and you get angry because of this, uh, you have to collect the toys, because when you don't collect your toys, you choose not to play a new toy", we both understand his feelings and thoughts and leave the choice to him.

With this inference, the child takes the adult as a role model.
