A tantrum (also known as temper tantrum, lash out, meltdown, fit or hissy fit) is an emotional expression or outburst. It is usually connected with those in emotional distress, that is represented by stubbornness, crying, screaming, violence, defiance, angry ranting, an effect from making attempts to calm. Sometimes, tantrum can also make a person to hit others and other physically violent behavior.
Physical control in tantrum may be lost. The person may be unable to keep being still; and even if the purpose of the person is met, they may not be calmed. Throwing a temper tantrum can lead to a child getting detention or being suspended from school for older school age children. Tantrum may also be expressed in a long violent, angry outburst of talk, a stretched out or angry speech.
