    How to handle mood swings of very active toddler?

    For example, if you want to take things from a toddler's hand they will become angry and start crying and rolling on the floor; or a toddler shouting in the shop to get something you don't want to buy. These are few examples.

    Well, for your first example I would try to get the child interested in something else they might be willing to give up the object you want to take from them for.  If this doesnt work or it is an item that needs to be taken from then urgently then you should probably just bite the bullet and take it from them.  They will have to calm down on their own or you can try to comfort them and explain why they can't have it...  It may seem futile but will eventually get through to them.

    In the second situation, there almost isn't anything you can do but take them out of the store if they won't listen and are making a "scene".  If our child does this, and he does, we give him the option of staying in the store, or waiting in the car with one of us.  If he chooses to stay in the store then we say he must behave or be helpful.  If he continues to act up we wisk him up and take him out.  After his fit has been thrown, then we ask him if he is ready to go back inside and listen to mommy and daddy...  It definately takes patience but there really isn't much choice in the matter from my perspective...

    whatever you do ... do not give into them by handing back what you've taken... this tells the child that when they scream and shout they can get what they want. after a while they'll know it's useless and they'll stop.
