according to a survey conducted by Tunes 4 Toddler Tantrums.As well as mums being driven to tears by their tots, the survey results
also show that 65% of couples say their toddler’s tantrums can prompt an argument between them and their partner.
30% of mums say their toddler has a tantrum every single day, and
42% say their toddler has a tantrum at least once a week, and Tunes 4 Toddler Tantrums aims to help.
It is a CD that contains 10 songs to help parents tackle common tantrum triggers by distracting tots with music and games.
Watch Victoria Arlidge, mum to two and a composer with BAFTA and EMMY-nominated TV credits to her name perform some of the tantrum beating tunes with her own kids:
Victoria, who has also written music for 240 children’s TV programmes,
produced the CD Tunes 4 Toddler Tantrums after her own troublesome tots drove her to distraction. She says: “Tantrums are a very real part of parenting pre-school children, but they can be destructive and soul-destroying for mums particularly when combined with sleep deprivation. As we can see from these results, they can be as upsetting for the parent as they are for the child.”
“Being a real believer in the powerful effects of music, I wondered why there wasn’t a CD on the market to help parents deal specifically with tantrums, by turning that negative energy into musical fun and games. So I decided to produce my own.”
Tunes 4 Toddler Tantrums consists of 10 catchy songs, and a variety of musical styles is combined with live instruments and fun musical arrangements to help parents withstand endless requests of “Again! Again!” Buy from www.tunes4toddlertantrums.co.uk/
