Therefore, ignoring this type of tantrum is the wrong step to take. A dad who has been chronicling online the myriad reasons for his young son's crying has struck a chord with parents everywhere. Crying jags are usually triggered when a tot craves attention, wants an activity or tangible item, or would like to escape a demand, said Michael Potegal, a behavioral neuroscientist at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Potegal said normally developing toddlers should learn quickly and will not like having their hands controlled. Instead, the parent needs to find a way to get the toddler to comply, which may require some advanced planning. A child's desires can range from wanting new toys or, despite their young age, aspiring to perform activities they won't be allowed to do for many years, such as driving a car. Potegal compared the situation to a slot machine, which rarely pays out but keeps people playing because of the occasional payout. This type of crying is aimed at delaying having to do what they were told, even if they don't think that consciously, Potegal said.
