It depends on the issue and why the child is freaking out on how to solve it. I usually just hold my son and shhhh in his ear cause talking only makes him more mad. Or is he wants something and i wont l;et him have it..like candy before bed then I just sit down and explain eye level why he cant have it. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Toddlers will always have melt downs its about how patient you are about that will make the situation worse or better. Good luck. Its can be hard...I am not always patient myself but I know it helps to be. Hope this helped some?!
