    If she's past the pointed reason, we ask her to go to her mat or her bed, until she feels in control. She seems to prefer being by herself with her books or snugglies to calm down

    Sometimes I don't cope! But I do have two 3 year olds. Usually it's one or the other that plays up, if it's both and I'm by myself I give up and go home.

    If I have to do something downtown or out about I take them to the bakery first with their purses and let them choose a cake or cookie and they pay for it with their pocket money, they love doing it and it distracts them from everything else.
    I also try and keep a calm tone and just keep talking, I'm not sure if this is for their benefit or to reassure myself though lol.
