  1. My toddler’s tantrums were over the top – she had/has an attachment disorder and was hot-tempered by nature. Very firm boundaries were the only thing that ultimately worked, and it took a loooooong time. I do NOT think the same strategies would have worked for my son, who was prone to much more occasional MELTDOWNS due to sensory processing differences.

      I agree, I do feel sensory meltdowns are a completely different issue and are not your typical “toddler tantrum” for sure. Sometimes children with sensory needs, need a sensory break or need some sort of sensory intervention. Thanks for your input Full Spectrum Mama 🙂
