3 Secrets to Calming Tantrums and Meltdowns

Of course, there is no “easy” button if you have a child that tantrums and meltdowns frequently. If you are at the beginning of this journey with a child that frequently explodes, it can feel so lonely and helpless. I am not saying that everything magically goes away if you get these secrets… however, I am telling you that you can start to see change! Not just with your child, but with you and your entire family!

I have spent the last month sharing a 3 part video series on Tantrums and Meltdowns. We looked at the difference between the two, what to do, say or avoid during them, and I even laid out an entire plan for getting to the bottom of tantrums and meltdowns.

Each part of this series included a blog post, a video, and a free download to make it easier for you to get the information you need, they way you enjoy best. Now that the series has ended, I wanted to put everything in one place for you, so that you can get all of the parts and have a place you can pin or save to come back to if you need it again…because let’s face it, change isn’t going to happen over night!
