We'd put them in time out, and tell them they could rejoin us when they got themselves under control and stopped crying. Then we'd wait for the moment they stopped to take a breath for the next loud wail - that's the point we'd go to them and say, very good, you're getting yourself under control, and you've stopped crying, let's talk about this.

It worked just about every time. You have to time it right, but when you step in like that with a calm tone in your voice, they start to get themselves back in control.
