Hi...Tantrums may happen when kids are tired, hungry, or uncomfortable; or because they can't get something (for example, an object or a parent) to do what they want. Learning to deal with frustration is a skill that children gain over time.
Tantrums are common during the second year of life and rarely later on, a time when language skills are starting to develop. Because toddlers can't yet say what they want, feel, or need, a frustrating experience may cause a tantrum. As language skills improve, tantrums tend to decrease.
When the kid is screaming at the top of her voice because she knows that you are agitated by that and that you will bend to whatever the wants are.
At that particular point of time the best way is to keep your composure and not to react to such behavior.
It is very common at this age to react like this and get things done because the kid cannot get things done by reasoning or by dialogue.
If you start yielding to those demands just because the kid is screaming actually this will reinforce this behavior because the kid's mind automatically learns that if you scream you will get things done.
At the same time the kid should also learn that whatever the NEEDS are will be automatically met with but if it is not good for the kid, the WANTS will never be yielded to.
Please note the subtle difference between the needs and wants.
For example if there is a small toy car on the upper shelf, even before the kid asks it or immediately after the kid demands it, it has to be given to the kid.
But at the same time if the kid demands a glass jar it should never be given whatever screaming and tantrum the exhibits.
This is what you can do to avoid or prevent tantrums -
1. Give plenty of positive attention
2. Try to give toddlers some control over little things
3. Keep off-limits objects out of sight and out of reach
4. Distract your child
5. Help kids learn new skills and succeed
6. Consider the request carefully when your child wants something
7. Know your child's limits
