Science of Parenting: All about Tantrums

When children throw tantrums, which comes first: the screaming or the crying? Michael Potegal knows — and has the video evidence to prove it. The University of Minnesota researcher talks about his video study of tantrums in this month’s Science of Parenting podcast from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

Program host Douglas Gentile, an associate professor of psychology and extension specialist at Iowa State, “parent-on-the-street” Mike Murray and Potegal discuss the emotions related to the yelling, crying and whining of tantrums.

Listen to the complete 30-minute podcast.
