M! Yes my soon to be 14 month old daughter has begun temper tantrums. It happened yesterday evening, this morning and again this evening. I can blame it on daylight savings, or may be a result of me being gone at work, teething, tired, sick, a phase. I really can't say because she can't tell me. Or maybe that is why she is having a tantrum, because she can't use words to express herself!
I may be mean, but I think it's kind of cute. She gets upset, specifically when I put her down. She starts to cry, stomps her little feet and then plops down on her butt. She was going to throw herself backwards yesterday, but then she looked behind her, saw hardwood floors and decided against it.
I am no stranger to temper tantrums. With V and my siblings if it was over a simple little thing I would take care of it to stop the tantrum. If it was not going to happen I would ignore them until they were done and then give them a hug and talk about what/why they were upset.
With M she can not talk yet but I still talk to her. All she wants is to be held. I think it is a combination of missing me and being tired. I go a head and pick her up and hold her or sit with her. For now her temper is easily calmed. I can't say that will always happen but for now I am thankful I can stop her tears and calm her down.
How have you handled temper tanturms from your children?

If you don't want to read me whining and complaining please look away now.
I am so tired! All I want to do is veg out watch some TV and then go to bed. Except I have dishes to do, a kitchen to clean, laundry to wash (and dry and maybe fold, I doubt it will make it into drawers), homework, bake cookies, and get everything ready for the morning.
Today was\is a rough day. After work I went to get gas and I locked my keys in my car. Duh me! (Forehead meet palm) . This threw our whole evening off. Hubby came to save me with both girls in tow. Then we caved and had fast food for dinner. By the time we got home it was homework, brush teeth and bedtime for the girls.
Now I have to, absolutely must, get things ready for the morning. I am not a morning person. Everything must be ready or I will be flustered, cranky, and running late. That means getting bottles ready, packing lunches, picking out clothes, prepping my coffee, and packing bookbags and the diaper bag. (Wait I have to get wipes in now or I'll forget again)
Laundry is already in the wash, it will be dried and folded because I don't want it smelly and wrinkly. Dishes will be done or else I won't have clean bottles or coffee cups!
Cookies will be baked. I promised at the beginning of the school year I would make treats for V's class harvest party. I need to make those tonight because I have other pinteresty goodies to make tomorrow (darn you pinterest! ).
Homework, yea that is not getting done. Procrastination at its finest. I'm not too worried about it, I did well on my last test and I can catch up, um, well I will, sometime...
I can not let myself sit down or else I won't get back up. So I'm putting my earplugs in, listening to some music and I'm gonna get stuff done. Hopefully I can still get 6 hrs of sleep.
Also I'm totally procrastinating by posting....
