In a case where a toddler is angry, a caregiver should first respond calmly and then change the setting, the activity, or the people involved as a distraction to make the toddler feel supported. The toddler may be held to calm him or her since they may hurt themselves or others. Additionally, the caregiver can now offer choices when possible, but they should be consistent to avoid situations that may trigger frustrations. Lastly, the caretaker should encourage communication. Once children are distracted when they are angry, and a better choice is offered, they easily calm down. In other cases where children become violent and are held out of control, they also become still. Here, the caregiver can teach an alternate behavior.
