be it your parent kid or beloved..i.e partner.. when they get in pissy mode how do you calm them down?1. firstly i disappear from the room sdo they can let it out.. then after a few mins i sheepishly come back in with a nice cup of something.. 2. i sit the person down..don;t say anything..stay very quiet..now that works wonders.. 3. the other party usually wants a hug and apologises for the putburst..and all is calm again..

It really all depends on who it is. Like, if it is my oldest child she is ushered to their own room for some alone/ cool down time. The youngest gets some time out and we talk about expectations and fits. My spouse gets a tad ludicris at times. When that happens I tried to be supportive.

Oh a cuppa works everytime. I used to have a boss who was such a moody git you never knew what mood he was gonna be in from one moment to the next so I kept a secret packet of biscuits for him and whenever he had 'one' on him I would take him a nice cuppa and a biscuit - it worked everytime!

I try to give my partner reassuring touches and kind words whenever they're not in the best of moods. She's rather good at calming down quickly and I'm not sure why, but it seems I have a pretty calming effect on her.

Sounds like you have a very good method developed. It would work for me. I am married to a person who does not seem to get all wound up, so I do not need to do anything. With others, I think my best skill is listening.
