But what is my point, you ask?
Try lots of different things as a parent. Do not get stuck in just one way of parenting for each child and each situation. And ask our creative God for His ideas. This is how I finally came up with a tantrum solution that worked for us.

This often led to the girls snuggled up in my arms as I asked God to help sooth and comfort them. (very fun, indeed) And the cool thing is - our adult daughters ask us to pray for them on a regular basis.
ps. And, please, do not be so hard on yourself when your kids act up. We have a perfect Heavenly Father and we still act up all the time.
