Temper tantrums range from whining and crying to screaming, kicking, hitting, and breath-holding spells. They’re equally common in boys and girls and usually happen between the ages of 1 to 3. Some kids may have tantrums often, and others have them rarely. Tantrums are a normal part of child development.
Frustration, tiredness, and hunger are the most common causes.
Children may scream, cry, thrash, roll on the floor, throw things, and stomp their feet during a tantrum.
