Anyone with a young child has experienced their fair share of tantrums. From full on blow outs at the supermarkets to screaming fits at day care, we’ve all had to live through comforting a toddler through a distressing period in their short, mostly care-free lives.
Whilst the reasons behind some of their little spats might be legitimate (you washed their favourite shirt, come on), some are downright perplexing.
Father of two, Greg Pembroke, knows this well.
He’s the man behind the internet phenomenon, ‘Why My Kid Is Crying’, which has spawned two best-selling books and a thousand laughs around the world.
With classics such as ‘I broke his cheese in half’ and ‘the neighbour’s dog isn’t outside’, Pembroke’s hilarious blog by the same name absolutely nails kid logic – or lack of it.
