    This depends on the tantrum. For example if It's a minor temper tantrum such as throwing toys around in their bedroom, screaming, or throwing themselves on the floor kicking and screaming then the best way to cope is to just ignore it and they'll eventually stop once they realize they won't get any attention from it. If this is a very violent temper tantrum such as destroying property or doing things that can hurt themselves or others or they're being disrespectful, put them in timeout immediately. For example set them in whatever room you're in and explain why they're in timeout, if they get out of the timeout area put them back in and keep doing this until they stay in that area. After the timeout is over explain again why they were put in timeout and say " I want an apology" if they apologize in an angry tone of voice or they refuse to apologize, leave them in timeout until they give you that censure apology.

    Here are a few steps that have helped many parents…

    1) Be understanding. Your child is not a miniature adult. Having little experience in dealing with his emotions, he may overreact when he is upset. Try to see the situation through his eyes.—Bible principle: 1 Corinthians 13:11.

    2) Stay calm. When your child is having a tantrum, losing your temper will not help. To the extent possible, ignore the tantrum and react matter-of-factly. Remembering why tantrums occur will help you to stay calm.—Bible principle: Proverbs 19:11.

    (see why tantrums happen in the following link … https://www.jw.org/en/library/magazines/g201307/ho... )

    3) Hold your ground. If you give in to whatever it is your child is demanding, he will likely throw another tantrum the next time he wants something. Calmly show your child that you mean what you say.—Bible principle: Matthew 5:37.

    4) Be patient. Do not expect tantrums to disappear overnight, especially if you have given your child reason to believe that his behavior will sway you. If you react properly and consistently, however, the tantrums will likely diminish. Eventually, they will stop altogether. The Bible says: “Love is long-suffering.”—1 Corinthians 13:4.

    I used to just make sure that they could not harm themselves and then ignore it.

    Do not shout, being calm is the best thing to do in this situation. Take the child out of the situation, and put them somewhere quiet whilst they call down. You may want to leave them alone while they do that, afterwards explain what the issue was and take something away so they understand not to do it again

    Depends on the reason for the tantrum:

    Frustrated over not being able to communicate? Do your best to figure out what he or she is saying.

    Overtired? Nap.

    Having a fit because you said no? Ignore it or place him or her in a safe spot like a Pack 'n Play in another room until the fit ends. Do not give in after saying no.

      Putting the child in some sort of enclosure in another room will isolate the youth thus keeping it from any positive encouragement from the parents .
