    Re: Things in Common

    Name 10 ways to respond to an unkind remark:

    1. "I don't appreciate that."
    2. "Why would you say something like that?"
    3. "Do you have any idea how mean that sounded?"
    4. "What's eating you?"
    5. With a cold, hard stare
    6. With a comeback
    7. With total silence.
    8. Burst into tears.
    9. Throw a punch.
    10. Turn your back and walk away.

    Name 10 ways to defuse a child's temper tantrum:

    1. Tell him/her that he/she can have a temper tantrum for as long as he/she wants, but he/she has to do it in another room, away from everyone else. It's fairly boring to have a tantrum without an audience.

    4. Valium. Give it to the kid or take it yourself. Either way, it works (and yes, of course, I'm kidding).

    I think that depends--are you sending the child to his/her room and locking that door or going to your own room and locking the door until the kid quiets down?

    7. Throw your own tantrum. I have no idea if that would work, but I bet it would startle the heck out of the kid.
