The terror of the public tantrum

Psychology Today: Amy Przeworski, assistant professor of psychology, blogs about why she’s gone from being a person who was annoyed when parents allowed their children to throw tantrums in public to actually being that parent who allows it. She explains why it’s perfectly OK to let a child find a way to calm him/herself down rather than being a parent who gives the child what he/she wants.
