I suppose in a roundabout way this is a spinoff of the time out thread. It got me thinking.
I want to preface this question by saying I am not judging anyone, rather as a first time mum-to-be I am genuinely interested in what you do.
What do you do when your toddler/ small child starts having a tantrum/ being loud and demanding in a public place, as in a shopping centre or restaurant.
I feel like it's not a good idea to reward the behavior, do just giving them what they want probably isn't the best option, but you can't just ignore them for a few minutes like you would at home, can you??
I've always thought I would just take them home, but honestly, the shopping needs to be done, you can't let a child determine your activities by their tantrum schedule...
As you can tell, I am super confused i'd love to hear what you actually do in this situation. No judging, no parents are perfect
Ps. Secretly hoping I have a perfect baby never need this info
