Observing my small step-grandaughter lying on the ground kicking and screaming (I forget the exact reason. There probably wasn't one), I finally realised why toddlers do it like that. By lying down, they free up all four limbs to thrash about and make maximum impact. (Having weathered countless tantrums from my four children, seven grandchildren and seven step-grandchildren, I should probably have worked this out years ago.)
Next time I'm seriously annoyed, I think I just might try it myself.
