My girls are my world!!!!
so i stopped taking him
and now after about 3 months i will take him occasioanlly becuase he wants to go and he is very well behaved
Its frustrating, my DS is now 3yrs and it seems to be worse,
When we go shopping he has a tanty for lollies/toys or starts running off on me.. Now he has to go on one of those kids harness hand straps as he will just take off on me.
i'm over the onlookers who stare at me while his jumping up and down on the walkie..That doesn't help!..
Hopefully it will get better for both of us, with a lil persistance..
I take snacks, toys and her own purse with coins in it. But when she has had enough every1 knows about it! The latest thing she is doing, whilst crying she reaches out to strangers and says "help me!!" I nearly died the first time she did it! My fiance thought it was hilarious... until she did it to him! lol!
So you're not alone at all! I have just tried to keep trips as short as possible but go out at least 3 times a week to friends places, the park, the shops etc

At one of the department stores they had a blow up slippery dip on display and he wanted to play on it. When I asked him to get off it so I could do my shopping he chucked the biggest tanty. I picked him up and he was screaming and kicking and when I tried to put him down he started to run to where the slippery dip was so I quickly picked him up and walked out of the shop and he just kept getting worse and worse so I just left the shopping centre and went home.
I hate it when people stare. It's like they have not seen a child throw a tantrum before. It's what kids do sometimes. Do they think it helps if they stare???????????????????????? People just staring is worse than the tantrum!
then a week later she ran away from me twice during one trip to the supermarket. the first time I had to chase her while trying to hang on to my 7 month old. the second time I had to abandon the trolley and baby and chase 2 year old as she was nearly at the carpark. and everyone at the shop just stood and stared. i wanted to yell at them to stop her!!!
she spent the whole time in the trolley yelling to get out and stomping on the shopping.
so i have decided NEVER to leave the house again! failing that I will bring my ipod so i don't have to listen to her! and i want supermarkets to make a trolley with a big cage attached for the toddlers!!!

My 2.5yr DD is normally pretty well behaved whilst shopping, but has her days (like today) where she wants to sit in the 'baby trolley' or wants one of everything we walk past. We were at toys r us last month and she would just sit down next to something she wanted and would not get up, a silent protest... until I removed her...
I normally make sure I'm organised with snacks and her handbag and small toys.
I'm not advising you to do this but as last resort sometimes I walk off and ignore her (can still see her and within quick reach), pretend that I don't notice her tanty. whatever you do don't give in now to their demands or you will be doing it when they are older and (if possible)louder.

LOL why dont that have this stuff in the baby books huh?? I think my DD was a great contraception for the group of teenagers who were at the mall!
I just smile at them and have a chuckle to myself that an innocent child can upset their precious time (all of 5 min) shopping with a bit of noise.
I've just been trying to deal with it the best that I can and I think that's all we can do. Be strong ladies and I hope I wasnt too cruel in this post.
