Listen to this audio on the Calm Down Corner. 

If your child refuses to go to the calm down corner:

  • Model the calm down corner within by calming yourself down.

  • Breathe.

  • Disengage.

  • Walk away.

  • Refuse to battle or power struggle.

  • If your child badgers you, simply repeat, “When you’re calm, I can hear you and we can talk.”

  • Continue breathing aloud.
