With vaccinations rolling out, we’re getting more questions about reopening and the status of various programs. And that’s a good thing! Madison Children’s Museum is currently projecting to reopen to visitors sometime this summer. We’re aware that many local school districts are offering in-person learning using distancing methods that wouldn’t be possible to replicate in our interactive museum. We will continue to observe what works best for both our local schools and other museums around the country and to consult with public health authorities so that when we reopen we will do so as safely as possible for our visitors, staff, and community. We look forward to seeing everyone in the museum again this summer.See all our statements about the closure at www.madisonchildrensmuseum.org/covid-19 ...

Whether a tantrum or a meltdown, what is important is we respond with connection to tame the limbic system. The behavior may not be acceptable to you, but there is nothing wrong with your child feeling the way they do. Make space for their emotions; validate how they’re feeling THEN set the limit. “You’re so mad at me right now; but you may not have the cookie. I’m going to stay right here until those feelings go down” or "I can see you’re so sad; you don’t want to go to bed. But honey it is bedtime." Then say no more. Just hold space, allow for the eruption to happen — tears are the body‘s way of recalibrating the nervous system and getting your little one back to ground zero.
