When your child is in meltdown mode, seconds seem like minutes, and minutes seem like hours. It horrible. The screaming, the yelling, the kicking. As parents with a child who constantly struggles on a daily basis these meltdowns are exhausting and so emotionally charged that it affects everyone in your home. Maybe you have tried a few things, but nothing seems to work. (That was us too). Over the last 6 years of addressing Samantha's issues we have become very, very, very good at turning her from meltdown mania to a happy girl.
