All I ever needed to know about handling tantrums I learned from

The Unofficial Guide: The Color Companion to Walt Disney World, page 98: 

Stop, listen (really), comfort
Freeze the action when things start to get out of hand. 
Remember that your kids are tired and overstimulated. 
Now's the time to be the adult; you throwing a big fat
fit will only make matters worse.  Instead, try to listen,
calm and comfort.

Not sure why it's easier to take advice from a mouse than from Supernanny.  I'll just go with it though...


  1. Very good advice!! Gotta love Disney!

  2. That's hysterical. I read, "We drove your child to this madness, now you suck it up and deal with them". LOL
