What the Expert Says:

If you can, identify the trigger.  If you know what brings on a tantrum in a specific child, avoid it.  Should a tantrum happen, ignore it until it is over.  Then, calmaly talk with the child about it.

Best regards.

This is a very broad question and the best answer to it would vary from child to child. Children can throw tantrums for different reasons but overall a tantrum results from some sense of emotional distress. A teacher could figure out what's triggering the child's tantrums - is it a transition- is it during writing time - does it happen at the same time of the day- is it over conflicts with other children - and then the teacher could work to help the child manage their distress rather than descend into tantrum. Some children can control their tantrums more easily than others - some children throw tantrums rather deliberately and other children almost seem controlled by their tantrums and need a lot of help to overcome them.
