London, Sept 9 (ANI): A survey has revealed that kids with names like Rose or Corey are the most likely to throw a tantrum.

The study by Bounty Parenting Club found that others who can be a handful are those named Sophia, Victoria, Faith, Jay, Bailey and Kyle.

The survey of 3,000 parents of kids aged one to four, found that children with names like Connie, Rachel, Finn, Christopher or Ewan were the best behaved.

It also found that girls are more difficult to handle - with 58 percent often throwing tantrums compared with 56 percent of lads.

The average child has three major strops a day - with mid-afternoon the most stressful time.

Four in ten parents walk away until their child calms down, while a third tell them off straight away and a quarter use the naughty step.

“Tantrums are still common in kids up to four. Clear routines and rules and providing distractions are all helpful temper-curbing tactics,” the Sun quoted Bounty’s Faye Mingo as saying. (ANI)
