Tantrums can be of any size or shape. When your child “loses it,” they might entail dramatic explosions of rage, frustration, and disorderly conduct. Screaming, stiffening limbs, an arched back, kicking, falling over, thrashing about, or fleeing away are all possible sights. As part of a tantrum, kids have been known to hold their breath, throw up, smash items, and hurt themselves or others.
So why do tantrums occur? Children aged 1-3 years old frequently have tantrums. This is due to the fact that young children’s social, emotional, and language development is still in their infancy. They may become frustrated because they find it difficult to express their needs, feelings, and even desire to take care of themselves. They are also discovering the impact of their actions on others. Therefore, tantrums are one of the ways that young toddlers regulate their emotions, try to comprehend or alter their environment, and communicate their feelings.
Older children can have tantrums too. This can be because they haven’t yet learned safe ways to express or manage feelings. Parents are sharing the random reasons their kids have tantrums on Twitter.

There are certain things that might increase the chances of tantrums in toddlers and older kids:
- Temperament – this affects how fast and strongly kids react to things like upsetting occurrences or environmental changes. More sensitive kids could be offended by these things more easily.
- Stress, hunger, tiredness and overstimulation – these may make it more difficult for kids to express, control, and stay calm.
- Situations that children just can’t cope with – for example, a toddler might have trouble coping if an older child takes a toy away.
- Strong emotions – worry, fear, shame and anger can be overwhelming for children.
