Hello cxt:

Ancient thread but a good topic to keep exploring IMV...

<<if its a temper tantrum then he/she is asked to leave the floor and go sit down in a chair off the mat/workout area.

Full blown melt downs whatever their specific trigger do not often "reduce" with more attention, whether it is deserved, and required or not.

What method-approach do you use to drown their literal flames before us?

<<I'm here to teach martial arts.....not deal with the tantrums of their child....

Being children, they will and do happen at times. How can you avoid-prevent the emotions of children? Accidents happen, things are misunderstood, contact is occasionally made. Emotions should surface. Are these permitted IYV?

<<not sure that is very fair.

Not fair but reality none the less.
