Tantrum: an uncontrolled outburst of anger or frustration in a young child or like in a young child.
Children of any age can throw a tantrum. A tantrum leaves most parents agitated and lost on how to reconnect with their child. The situation can become even worse if it takes place in a social setting, causing embarrassment to join the mix of emotions for both the parent and the child.
Tantrums stem from built-up emotions coming out over a seemingly small issue. You may find your child with a closet overflowing with clothes in tears because they “have nothing to wear.” You may find your toddler crying that they’ve lost their Lego figurine, complaining about how they lose everything they love, and you as a parent never help to find it.Read

“How do I stop being on the screen all the time and get him interested in reading?” -asked my friend, mother of a 12-year-old.
I looked at my friend surprised, wondering what prompted her to ask this question. We were traveling in the Hong Kong subway which is called MTR (short for Mass Transit Rail).

While this was a common sight when we were growing up, these days books and newspapers have been replaced by phones and tablets.
