But whilst tantrums may seem like just a phase, it's essential to deal with them properly – and according to one parenting pro, Kirsty Ketley, giving in will make your kid a brat.

The whizz, a mum-of-two herself, explained that children are more clever than adults give them credit for and will soon realise that crying and shouting – especially in public – is the quickest way of getting what they're after.

Chatting exclusively to Fabulous, the guru said: ''The biggest thing – and I know it's hard – is to remain calm.

''Take a big, deep breath […] and remain as calm as possible – because you can be more in control when you're calm.''

This, she noted, will also teach your children how to control their emotions as they grow up.

''Show them you understand why they're frustrated or upset. But just try to not relent.''

The parenting expert reminded to remember that it's mainly an age thing and children should not be punished for acting out.
