I think the tough thing about tantrums is that so many kids are going to need different reactions. Eliana is passionate, but sensitive. With her I need to let her know I'm here when she wants to cuddle and wind down. I sit near her with a distraction of my own and wait it out.
With Eli, who is more happy and outgoing. I just hold him and distract him, in the rare cases he becomes inconsolable I sit next to him and wait like I do with Eliana.

Everything's more complicated in public, but I think I would get them to a safe place as soon as possible to let them work things out.
