    I try to avoid the “melt downs” as they are not good for ones mental health.

    There’s always next period, Miss Plainwell.

    Depends on what kind of “melt-down” you are talking about, especially on the last official day of winter!

    Mr. Mallett’s concept of a meltdown and my own are very different. Am I the only one who can’t make sense of this?

    Miss Plainwell “won” at “meltdown roulette” because she was ready for meltdown from the student but didn’t get one — so she’s still playing. Just like a win at Russion roulette is no bullet, so you can still play. You never know how an elementary school student will react to some situations.

    Or anyone, any age, under stress.

    My husband almost had a meltdown at the beach, we were snorkeling and a wave hit him just as he took off his mask. The mask went into the ocean. His deceased father had given him that mask 30 years ago. I was able to find it, but it was a close one.

    Thank you! It makes perfect sense now, and it’s funny, too. She was anticipating a meltdown, not witnessing one in progress.

    Probably.

    Some kids work up to it. They can key off your attention too.
    Consider a fall or tumble off any set of wheels. Some kids will look around to see if anyone is watching. If you run to them, it’s a “major injury” needing lots of hugs and at least a band-aid. If you can avoid eye contact, they’ll go back to what they’re doing. For real injury, that doesn’t happen.

    I’ve lost two expensive pairs of glasses in the waves of Lake Michigan, even though they were strapped on securely.

    Gee, would any of us have thought that such an event was “awesome,” at any age?

    @bigpuma

    What do you think of when a child has a “meltdown”? That is what he means.

    @Tom Flapwell

    I think there would be. There are people who find entertaining things that I wouldn’t want to watch in a million years.
