    So tell me what is the best way that your children handle the meltdowns or you have learned to handle the meltdowns for them and their personalities?? my one grandson. I never know what way it’s going to go he six… I would say it’s in Meltem, but when he got overlay cited to see family he starts barking like a dog and he gets louder and louder and louder … please do we were just let him go and do his thing… as a grandparent I never intervened, and I let mom and dad handle the situation.. put as a child with it. Did your kids feel they needed to just be left alone as I got older and worked through it or just go over to them and just be hug/held as they went through the process.
