LOL at trying to reason with a kid during a toddler tantrum. Now is not the time! During a tantrum, a toddler is quite possible the most unreasonable creature on the planet. It's like trying to reason with cats or rocks or the sun. They are not going to listen to you, they are not going to hear you, they are not going to sit down and discuss this with you. Toddlers are the most unreasonable creatures on earth when they're perfectly well-behaved. But sure, let's expect our Tasmanian Devil children to stop and talk about their feelings like they're not insane.
