Okay, this has to be one of the most important skills parents have up their sleeve.  I have a child with asthma.  In my case it's vital.  If a kid panics, things just escalate out of control.  So, any tricks we teach our children to stay calm can be life saving.  You can read all about that in my book Little Patient Big Doctor.

 

Even if you are not dealing with asthma but have a child who is stuck on top of the jungle gym, it's not at all helpful if your kid starts screaming and freaking out.  My favorite is our little ones who can't handle it if they see a life size Elmo.  On the other end of the spectrum, a teen who just loses it at the site of someone they don't want to see.  Do you bother with breathing exercises?  Do we all just forget about healthy snacks and make sure we have chocolate handy (the comfort food for all ages)?  I'd love to hear from you.  What do you do?
