I read somewhere that kids throws tantrum and get easily frustrated as their language skills are not fully developed between age 1 to 4.My kidoo is 2.4 years and I have learnt from my very own experience that to tame any kind of kid's tantrum, first thing to follow is to keep your mind cool(as i used to get frustrated so easily), then and only then you would be able to control your kid's tantrum. Other thing which I have noticed is that to tame the tantrums of kids age between 1 to 2, either you ignore their tantrums(not always) or divert them in some other stuff like music, video watching etc., as at this age they are not going to understand at any cost as their language skill is not developed yet. As now my boy is 2.4 years, I can literally make out the difference. If he throws any tantrums, I make him understand by speaking with him calmly or I tell him that for your good behaviour I will give you some incentive(toy, chocolates(sometimes) etc) and guess what? he really does understand my point and behaves nicely.
