I do what Adrienne has stated. My husband and I try to get on our littles level. We ask her to breathe. Even though, she’s not two yet, she understands when she gets extremely overwhelmed. Sometimes, I even lay her head on my chest and I calmly say we are going to take 5 big breaths together. We try so hard to be patient because we know that she cannot vocalize how she is really feeling, so we do that mental checklist in our brain!
