Home > Wellness Resources > Health Library > Temper Tantrums: Keeping a Record
Your doctor may ask you to keep a record of your child's
temper tantrums before you bring your child in for a
physical exam. It's a good idea to include the following information.
These answers can help your doctor get a
clearer picture of what motivates your child and how your child behaves. They may also reveal patterns, such as what triggers the tantrums. This
information can help a doctor learn more about your family and
advise you on how to manage your child's behavior.
Your doctor may recommend further
exams or tests if your child often has temper tantrums that last longer than 15 minutes or occur
more than 3 times a day.
