Q.

14 month old girl - tantrums

Dear Doctor
Our beautiful an no-nonsense 14 month old girl suddenly has a little tantrum if she doesn''t get it her way, if we refuse something that she wants she takes her dummy throws it with a swing on the floor, say a word or two in baby language, and then sort of shy pick up the dummy and behave deadnormal again.

We try to bring up our baby without being a brat.

Should we only ignore this or?

Thanks for your help.

This is the age when temper tantrums are common. Your little daughter is only having very minor tantrums in comparison to the real full- blown tantrums many children have. Try your best to ignore her little tantrums. Nothing works better than taking no notice of them.
