Note to Self :: A Lesson in Parenting

When child is sobbing and throwing stuff around all over the wrong colour t-shirt (or feel free to insert any wacky pre-schooler behavior), instead of standing over her and monotoning blah-blah-rules-blah-blah-don't-be-so-irrational-blah-bloody-blah, try just getting down and pulling her into a hug. She may just bury her face in your shoulder and tell you "my bones are banging on the eardrums in my head." You can then give her a drink of water and peace will be restored.
