wh en my little one gets upset, i get down to her level and i tell her in a calm voice, count to five and take five deep breaths. if shes still having a hard time i will say mommy cant make it better if you dont tell me,
this usually works.


I let my daughter lay on me to calm her down when she feels me close to her it settles her down :)


Usually a hug or speaking quietly calms down an upset child. If they are upset because they are angry then sometimes letting them calm down on their own works best.
