As a mom to a three-year-old, I am highly familiar with toddler tantrums. I’ll admit, sometimes I don’t handle those toddler tantrums gracefully. Sometimes I give in, sometimes, I walk away and ignore, and sometimes I yell and completely lose my cool. I feel awful admitting this, but I know I’m not alone. I’m sure other parents listening to this episode can probably relate. All of us parents have been in a situation where our toddlers have one meltdown after another, and we’ve just had it. There is only so much our sanity can handle that we can sometimes lose our cool. That’s why I’m thrilled to have today’s guest with us, Devon Kuntzman.
