So why give them anything more or acknowledge their "pain?" Nina just said NOTHING

Hillary or her supporters do will change their minds about their feelings or their behavior.

I guess they need to be treated like my granddaughter. When she acts up and begins to scream I just tell her to go sit in the chair and scream as loud as she wants to and when she finishes she can join the rest of us or go to bed. It doesn't last long and she has never gone to bed.

I would hold him and rock him..if he fought me I would just sit beside him till he wore himself out..I think I saw about 4 or 5 tantrums, then when he ran out of the house when he was about 14, my mother said.."he just wants attention" and I thought, well gee I can GIVE him attention...so ran after him and we sat and talked..
