Mommy Tips to Avoid Tantrums

What's Your Secret Weapon?

Every mom has an ace in her pocket. When all else fails, we all have a secret weapon we turn to for curing an uncooperative tot. For my daughter it was Elmo; anything and everything red and furry would usually stop her mid-tantrum and return a sweet smile to her face. I always made sure her babysitters knew that if things weren't going well, it was more than OK to give her a quick fix of Elmo's World.

So tell us, what is your secret weapon? Join our The Mommy Club over in our LilSugar Community and share your tips! Here's a detailed guide to posting questions or posts to groups if you are new to the PopSugar Community.

It's Dora for us! :) Any tantrum, any crying spells, once we put Dora on, there's this invisible switch that turns her tantrums off. What would I do without her. :)
