DOs and DON'Ts (Well Some Of Them)

Fist things first, Never, ever tell them to calm down it only wind them up.
Try and get around this by getting as much information as possible, not easy when they throwing fits I know.
Put your self in their shoes (if possible) and try to think how they are thinking.
Avoiding say 'Hold on one moment please' as being put on 'hold' get on peoples nerves.
