How To Deal With Tantrum Children?
Hello Doctor. My child is 3, 5 years old, and has a tantrum that I think is great. Every tantrum always hits the head, or body, throws things that are nearby, and even bumps the head. How can we as parents handle it or do my own therapy for my child? Thank you, Please reply.

Tantrums are expressions or expressions of frustration expressed by children when facing certain problems. Tantrums generally occur in children younger than 4 years and usually occur when certain conditions such as being hungry, thirsty, tired, sleepy, or do not get the toys he wants.

There are also some medical conditions that can cause a child to be more explosive or emotional, such as a moody child, difficulty adapting to new environments, ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, or other developmental disorders. You should consider consulting with a child psychologist or pediatrician, especially if the tantrum is getting worse after 4 years of age, committing severe violence and injuring yourself or others, often causing damage to goods or materials, the child faints, and if the child complains of illness excessive stomach or headaches.
Some tips you can do among others:
Calm the heart but remain firm in the child, explaining to the child that anger is a bad attitude

Give time so that children can calm down and do not always obey the wishes of the child
