Your kid is laying on the sidewalk in the "starfish" pose, screaming. You feel yourself turn red and start to feel really hot. You really want to join him on the sidewalk, but you're supposed to be the adult. What's a parent to do?

This kind of thing happens all the times in families. Sometimes it is an adult "tantrum" and sometimes it's the kids. Sometimes we all lose it. What can we do in moments like these?

Join Christy Farr, of Seeds and Weeds Coaching, and Rebecca Thompson, MS, of The Consciously Parenting Projgect, as they share their own stories and alternative views of tantrums and emotional upsets and how we can move from surviving to thriving through these experiences.
