I'm wondering if anyone has any tips for dealing with the screaming that can accompany tantrums. 2.5yo DD doesn't tantrum often, but when she does, she screams incredibly loudly and I find it renders me completely unable to be a decent parent. Normally I take the empathise and comfort approach when she's distressed and it works really well, but I just can't manage it when she screams.
I know she needs me to be with her when she's like this - if I walk away, she gets even more distressed - but I just really can't bear the noise. So I'm just wondering if anyone has any tips to sort of ground yourself in the midst of a tantrum so you don't end up getting really upset and angry too.
