I have that book and have liked it; thanks for reminding me that it’s on the shelf! We’ve had a number of grade-A, high-intensity tantrums lately Tried the technique the other night and…miracle! HC wound down in a hurry compared to me leaving her alone in the room to continue to pitch her fit, so I think this is what we’ll try (hers are worst at bedtime usually) from here on out. Plus I like the idea that it teaches her that just because she’s upset and acting out, she’s still loved and attended to in a supportive way. HTH and good luck; the 3s are torture in so many ways!! But it does make the good days seem that much sweeter!
