Do apps calm your kid down? When children get upset, parents often reach for the quick fix of a screen. While fine in a pinch, on the occasions when you have a little more time to deal with a meltdown encourage your child to try other calming techniques -- slow breaths talking about their feelings, going for a walk, having a big stomping contest, or just collapsing in tears within a safe, loving hug.
