The answer is no.
My son throws a massive fit. After a few minutes of intense rage, he calms down and life goes on. I call this the contained blast. Depending on how hungry he is or how tired, an evening is peppered with anywhere from 1 to 10 blasts.
My daughter negotiates. Hours pass, countless time-outs are served, and the negotiations continue. I call this noise pollution.
What’s worse, contained blasts or noise pollution?
How does your child respond to “no” and how do you deal with it when they disagree?
