      Lol RIGHT, me and my brother knew if we acted up in public, when we got home, it went down, and if got real bad you better believe my parents knew how to make anything into a switch (that’s what my mom called it), they were not playing around with us

    Ignore them?? Beat them??? Talk to them like adults??? ALL BAD PARENTING advise. Praying for their children. Poor babies.

    Love and NURTURE the babies at home and they won’t act like heathens in the street.

      do you have children, even the most loved and nurtured children are bound to act out in public, what u don’t understand is that it could be that they are tired, or frustrated, or are just testing their independence. nothing wrong with that, just stand to the side, and let them go and freak what everyone else says or how they look. it’s just a natural part of growing up and it’s what all parents experience sooner or later especially when the kids are in the two to four age range.

    I have a 3 year old and I try to scale down on tantrums by always having snacks,books or toys whenever I go somewhere to her occupied.If she does act out in public I explain to her in firm tone that crying and screaming will not get her want she wants and then I ignore the behavior.Yeah people use to stare at me for letting her cry but eventually the crying became less and less.I was consistent with it and now all she needs is the “look” and then she acts like she has some sense.

    The best thing to do is Distract them with songs, guessing games, food recipes (if ur grocery shopping) let them choose different fruits veggies ect….Easy Stuff. But yea sometimes u gotta grab they butt and let them know you not playing.

    • MrsG-215

      I agree.I do that with my child as well.

    • shehiplocki

      I remember my cousins parents whopping her and dared her to cry, she now has problems with anger and takes it out on parents and anyone else who crosses her. She is VERY short tempered, don’t like children or anyone else.
      Sooooooo, if you whop your children please have enough respect to let them cry.

    Most of the time, you can avoid a meltdown simply by planning and having a firm talk w/the child prior to entering a store. As the adult, you should know that your child’s temparment can be triggered by hunger, boredom, being tired, or simply having a bad day (yes, kids are entitled to having a bad day too). Have extra snacks on hand, a small toy to play with, or try to include the child in the activity such as counting how many apples go into your bag. And if all else fails, drop everything, and just walk out and deal with the child once you get home. A child who knows the rules and consequences up front will be less likely to act up in public.

    When my oldest tried it I walked away. I got maybe 3 ft, he looked up, realized I wasn’t having it and straightened up. I’ve never had that problem again. Now, the youngest is a whole other story. I tried the same thing i did with the oldest and he started walking the other way. With him I have to be proactive, it’s either a talk beforehand or avoiding a situation that will set him off like trying to shop right before lunch or nap time.

    LOL!! thats right thats exactly how my parents did it and thats what how im gonna do because it gets results Quick im not with that “eventually” sh##. parents be like eventually the child will learn. NO! the same day you do it is the same day ill make sure it never happens again.

    My 3yrs old daughter had her first public over the top meltdown today after spending hours at a theme park. I told her, just wait till we get home. She hasn’t woken up yet.

  • shehiplocki

    ..in my experience you need to immediately pick up your child, even if you have to stop shopping or what ever you are doing to make sure your child doesn’t hurt themselves and make the situation worse. Take them straight to the bathroom or the car whichever is more convenient, and address it. Maybe they are tired or wanted a candy bar, toy or something you said no to. Talking should resolve it if you are doing your job at home they should get an attitude adjustment. I raised two children and only had to chastise them in public one time each. Parenting is a full-time job and discipline should start as soon as they start standing up, with love of course.
