Meltdowns are the tsunami of the household, they whip in from almost nowhere, swell up and drag everyone into the maelstrom. It’s the kind of tide you can barely swim against, and the greatest relief once it’s over.

Usually in the heat of the moment it doesn’t matter where or why the meltdown occured, all that you care about is swimming from the horror.

Once the waters recede you can assess the causes, meanwhile swim to the surface, keep a cool head, and take deep breaths.
