Quoting GL♣PK:" Redirecting him.. At that age if they get a reaction out of you they will continue to do something.. ... [snip!] ... got a snack, etc.. I didn't begin disciplining until 2.5.. When he actually understood cause and effect and could communicate"
That's what I've always thought. Would he even understand the cause and effect of ignoring the tantrum right now? Or would he just think that we're abandoning him when he's upset?
Right now we're just redirecting, and it seems to be working decently. I just didn't know if there was something else we could do, or if this is the best route at his age.
