So here’s a thing – did you know that there ACTUALLY exists a thing called a Tantrum Club. Yes, really, a Tantrum Club (see here). It’s a club where professional women (hmm why not men, I wonder?) can get together and basically have an adult version of a toddler tantrum, get rid of all their negative emotions, complete with a baseball bat and feel all lovely and happy afterwards as a result!
Lordy lordy, who would have thought that our darling toddlers’ favourite activity could actually have a whole club based around it?! Actually, I think it sounds like a rather superb idea, and I thought perhaps we should set up a spin off a Parent Tantrum Club where all we parents could go off and have a full blown tantrum with other parents, to release all the negative energy our nit wit toddlers had passed onto us earlier in the day through their very own tantrums.
We could start a whole other series of spin off clubs, inspired by toddlers too! How about the Nose Picking Club? or Bum Picking Club? or I Refuse to Eat Club? or I am Going to Do Everything to Annoy You Club or perhaps even a club where we could go around and inflict injuries willy nilly just like toddlers do – oh no wait a minute, that probably wouldn’t be so lovely now would it.
Hmmm…ok perhaps we should just stick to the Parent Tantrum Club then?
It seems that having a tantrum is significantly more beneficial when you are on the executing, rather than receiving side, with benefits reported to be:
Feeling at peace
Feeling happier and stress free
Feeling more at peace
Noticing much less arguments at home
Feeling less moody
Feeling less down and depressed
People say I “look younger”
Yeah, no ****!
Shame that when you are on the receiving end these benefits are 100% flipped on their heads then!
So who’ll join me? Any recruits out there?
