Signs you should talk to a pediatrician
By Diana Kohnle
(HealthDay News) -- Parents often think of a child's tantrum as a typical part of growing up. But sometimes there are warning signs that should prompt a call to the pediatrician.
The Cleveland Clinic mentions these examples:
- Tantrums that still occur or worsen after your child turns 4 years old.
- Tantrums that include the child causing self-harm, or harm to others or property.
- Tantrums that include holding one's breath, particularly if the child faints.
- Tantrums that are followed by anxiety, headache or stomach ache.
