Reply to 2 year toddler starts screaming if denied anything.

My son would throw himself on the floor and I was always terrified he would hurt himself. If redirecting doesn’t work - which, let’s be honest, sometimes it just doesn’t - I have found myself offering other things like a hug, or a little cuddle. If you’re in front of other people, take him around the corner or a few feet away where you can get on his level and have a one on one. Just keep talking to him, calmly and comfortingly, even when you’re not feeling that way on the inside. I also do timeouts, short 2 minute, but I start the time over if they get up. Sometimes they need a minute to work through their emotions and it gives you a couple minutes to regroup as well. Hope this helps!
