Drew Barrymore has shared a cheap parenting tip for stopping toddler tantrums and her fans have gone wild for the easy trick.
The actress, 43, revealed that giving your toddler bubbles was the answer when your little one is throwing a strop.
She posted the advice from the @seedlingsgroup Instagram account and wrote: ‘This was a great tip from them. The post said… Summer toddler tip: “keep bubbles on hand.
‘“You cannot tantrum if you are breathing and you cannot blow bubbles without breathing. You can’t tantrum while smiling and you can’t catch bubbles without lots of smiles. Quick distraction to get back to calm”.’
The mum-of-two added: ‘These are things I really needed as a new parent and I still marvel at them. I have worked with seedlings since my kids were born and still seek their advice regularly. They also make me feel not alone as a parent as well with relatable humor.’
Parents responded to the useful tip and praised Drew for sharing the advice.
