My four-year-old has had five meltdowns in the past two weeks. It’s a new record. If you’ve got kids, you know the drill: kicking, screaming, and general falling apart over something major… like the end of a t.v. show or the fact that I won’t give him another glass of milk.
Sometimes I handle his outbursts with calmness and grace. Other times, as I kneel down, eye-level, begging my little boy to calm down, I secretly imagine popping his little blonde head like a zit.
