What Should I Do When My Child Is Having a Meltdown in Public? | Ep. 58

meltdown in public

You’re in the grocery store. Or the park. Or at a family gathering. And you sense a major meltdown coming. It’s so embarrassing when your child has a meltdown in public – especially when you know other people are watching!

Join Jim and Lynne Jackson, co-founders of Connected Families, as they offer practical and down-to-earth solutions to this real-life struggle. This podcast addresses some common questions we frequently hear, such as:

  • “What should I do when my child is having a meltdown in public?”
  • “Is there a time and place for immediate obedience, and what does that look like?”
  • “How can I better connect with my child in a discipline situation?”

Along with these helpful insights, you’ll gain a crucial “big picture” perspective of your (and your child’s) identity as God’s beloved children. Not perfect parents with well-behaved kids, but imperfect parents and kids learning together in the love and grace of Jesus.

Bible references mentioned in this podcast:

The Parable of the Two Sons (Matthew 21:28-32)
Jesus’ Warnings to the Pharisees (Matthew 23:25-36)
