Stay Calm and Mom (or Dad) On
When that tantrum in the grocery store nearly snaps your last straw, breathe in, breathe out. Then, remember these mindful parenting techniques to return from the brink of your own meltdown.

It’s used to reduce stress, and can help parents and kids become more aware and more capable of handling tough situations.
