How to handle Mood Swings in Children.
Created by Bhavna Updated on Oct 25, 2012
Mood swings in children is a big worry for parents because more often than not the parents do not understand the reasons so as to why may a child have a mood swing. Mood swing is a common occurrence and can even be noticed in a toddler. The factors are the same as seen in a grown-up child, only that they become more complex and need to be better handled by the parents.

I agree with her too... tht we shud give child proper diet containing... protien, calcium, Iron. Shud give fruits, pulses, chapati, rice, 2 glasses of milk this is minimum. If possible give child nuts too... it helps to build strong body n increase immunity too. I hv seen many cases where child gets irritated or keep on crying entire day n mothers gone crazy as nt knowing the reason... It happens in anemic children as well... child feel tried all the time... feel sleepy n irritated.. Growing chldren needs good amt of Calcium, protein n Iron.

So true that staying hungry for long can induce irritability in lil ones, and they wont even know why they are upset.. great insights, thanks!

I totally agree with the many valid points covered by you. But however an interesting article at Humpty Bumpty Kids enlightened me on how the environment at home can make a difference in the moods, behaviour and attitude of a child. http://www.humptybumptykids.com/5-solid-tips-to-creating-a-positive-home-environment-for-kids/

Great thoughts there. Many parents are not aware that lack of proper nutrition could be causing mood swings and irritability in children, in fact deficiency of certain minerals such as magnesium, sodium and phosphorus may lead to fatigue, restlessness and irritability. Interestingly, most of these factors apply to adults as well, what with the hormonal changes and all, and mums n dads can take a cue, because kids often tend to bear the brunt of parents' moods :)
