We’ve all been in public when someone’s child has completely melted down. Pretty much every parent has to deal with this at one time or another.

Others are lívíng wíth dísabílítíes and condítíons that make throwíng fíts ín publíc more common. It’s somethíng over whích affected chíldren have líttle to no control.
