Tantrums are natural
Sometimes your toddler's feelings will overwhelm him, and he'll have a tantrum. It's impossible for him to stop the rush of tears and anger in the middle. Remember, he only has one way to let off steam. Unlike you, he can't channel it into something else like a workout at the gym. So during a tantrum, be patient, available, and willing to offer comfort or leave him alone, whatever he needs.
Some days you won't be able to imagine a better age. Your toddler can scribble loopy pictures for you, play peekaboo at a moment's notice, and participate happily in the ever-popular body parts game ("Where are mama's eyes?" "Where's your nose?"). Yet, on other days, your child gets so frustrated by his own limits, he'll cry and scream for what seems like hours. It can be as frustrating for you as it is for him, but it is a normal part of growing up.
No wonder lah c Dania ni very manja and cranky most of the time. sometimes without any reason.
At 16 months, your toddler may like scribbling, enjoys helping you around the house, and may be able to put his finger to his lips and say "shhhh." He also likes peekaboo, stacking blocks, and playing body part games like "Where's baby's nose?" He's probably willing to co-operate with dressing and, about this time, he'll begin to take an interest in going up and down stairs -- though he may not navigate them alone for a few more months.
Well it is what it is to a 16month old like Dania. She know to do all of those things that mention.
Your life: coping with toddler tears You're learning that two year olds aren't the only ones to go through "terrible" phases. Your toddler may be easily overwhelmed by life's challenges and respond to them by dissolving into tears and screams. Don't ask him to stop - he probably can't. Instead be patient, available, and willing to offer him comfort or just your presence, whatever he seems to need at the moment - however awkward the situation. He'll get over it and be good as new if you let the storm blow itself out.
Be patient Anne.......
