Joyce had written :

... When the controls on anything are released, the reaction can often be a dramatic grab for what was
controlled to fill up on it (TV, candy, freedom). ...

Is there a way to recover when control has been released too quickly. By recover I mean get to a situation where the child is not reacting to something but acting freely. Is time the only answer? Can a parent help?
