Don't Let Them See You Sad

Yes, seeing your child having a total meltdown is not fun or easy, but don't let her see that you are sad too. Kids feed off others' emotions, so when they see someone they love in distress, they often mimic the behavior. Keep a smile on your face — even if your heart is breaking — give lots of reassuring hugs and kisses, and leave.
