How do you handle morning meltdowns?

I make sure they get enough sleep, eat a good breakfast and talk to them about going to school that day. So by the time they leave they are mentally prepared. When we get to school I try to make my goodbye short and sweet.

We use a visual schedule. It list's the activities my son needs to do to get ready. As he gets them done he gets to pull the activity of the schedule. We have sensory breaks scheduled in as rewards. Works like a charm.

Bribery has worked the best for me. "We can bring your favorite stuffed animal for a ride along in the car if you can get your shoes on." My daughter is now five and morning meltdowns have thankfully passed.

We had a level 10 meltdown this morning. Sometimes it seems like nothing works so I just have to carry on and once the storm quiets be there with kindness and love.

I give my child plenty of space and let her cry them out. Then offer lots of hugs and love and get her on with her day.
