Going Limp

Tantruming toddlers seem to make their bodies go completely limp at the worst possible times,  forcing you to drag them along with you.

How to deal: Take a deep breath. When your child goes limp, he's trying to take control of a situation where he feels helpless. Avoid the issue by making sure your little one has choices. Park or pond? Bread or tortillas? Toy cars or a ball? When he can be a little bit in control, he'll at least be easier to deal with.
