Managing Emotions in the Classroom

As a teacher, parent, or specialist, we've all experienced times when children are simply unable to manage big emotions.  Perhaps anxiety, a disagreement, embarrassment, or something else led a child to experience big emotions, and now we are scrambling to put out the fire.  Our heart goes out to this child as we try our best to deescalate the situation, while also maintaining our own composure and emotions.
