    THANK YOU for episode 26. The interview with Robbyn Gobbel regarding what to do in the middle of a meltdown is exactly what I have asked professionals repeatedly and no one seemed to have any answers. And all of your questions and comments and discussions were so in line with my experience. Thanks for helping me feel like I am not alone.
