Re: Tantrums in the grocery store

I give ONE chance to walk and help. He's old enough to help.

After the one chance, I don't even give a warning. (the warning is before the one chance) and I put their little self in the cart.

It take no more than three times before they catch on that they only got that one chance, and Mommy isn't making empty threats. Usually it's less than three...but, some kids will hold out for the off chance that you will cave in first.

I also bribe with treats. I was the person who would steal a box of animal crackers and feed them to the child, then pay for them with my groceries.
