In this video, Stephanie from Our LANDing Crew discusses tips to minimize the potential for harm to a child having a meltdown or to others when one occurs. If possible, she suggests moving the child to somewhere that is safer and quieter. Another strategy that can work at times is to redirect the child’s attention to something else. When things quiet down, it is a good time to discuss with the child what happened, if possible, and to process emotions about it.
