Or, maybe SHE could defuse a little.
Wait. Teenager? no

I want to go out on a limb here and say that this is by no means limited to tween girls. Tween boys, bless them, have also been known to fall completely apart for reasons that on the surface make NO sense at all.

Time heals - sometimes. The cooldown period is essential, though. Follow up, finding out what was really wrong (if you can) because that can help prevent another worse meltdown. As she gets to know what might trigger one of these, she can deal with them better, too.

I'd say the person who needs to learn to handle the situation better is her, not you. Since the storms are so few and far between, you should have lots of time to de-brief and prepare her with strategies for the next one. Who knows? In two or three years, she might be able to defuse her own storms.
