So my 10 month old throws tantrums if i take something away that’s he can’t have. I just say “sorry sweetie, but that’s not safe. Here, this is a better toy for you to have” and then give him a safe item. I think acknowledging their emotion, but then immediately moving on to the next thing is a healthy way to teach them that its okay to feel upset but a tantrum isn’t going to change anything. Don’t react to the tantrum... cause then they will do it more often to get your attention more. At this age If you just distract them, or change things up they usually move on. They don’t have the attention span to do otherwise.
