Click here for a printable version of this tip

You know those days. The kids are cranky and
pushing all of your buttons. When you feel this
happening, try these ideas to regain control of
the situation and salvage the day:

* Stop everything, sit and the floor and read some
quiet books with your kids.

* Give your child a warm bath.

* Put on some soft, gentle music and encourage
everyone to relax.

* Turn off the television and turn down the lights.

* Talk about how you all can change the mood
in the house.

By staying calm yourself, you can keep the situation
from accelerating.
