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.
