Jennifer Kolari on Tantrums and Hearing Loss

Jennifer Kolari answered a question from a reader at My Child Feels today about how to manage a 4-year-old who has just been diagnosed with hearing loss and who is having tantrums. Jennifer notes that tantrums are common in 3- and 4-year-olds who may have more to say than they can easily verbalize. She recommends calmly and consistently administering a consequence for tantrum behaviour while also making sure to give lots of hugs and kisses at other times. Read Jennifer’s full response at My Child Feels.

The therapeutic methods suggested by Jennifer Kolari are based not on simple-minded behavioural solutions, but on building warm, nurturing relationships with our children, with insight and compassion not only for their little flaws, but also for our own larger ones."
