Ok I have this problem. Need some advice.
I live a minute walk from my son school so the kids ride their scooters.
I have a 6,4,3 and 18 month old.
The older two know to walk their scooters across the lollipop lady. I push the pram but my 3 year old rides her scooter across the road. Everyday I tell her and the lollipop lady tells her to walk. I tried explaining, showing, threats for her to walk. But no she jumps on and rides. I don't mind but today she had a go at me because its safety and road rules for her to walk. Fair enough I understand. So this afternoon I took the scooter from her and talk to her to walk. Well she put in the biggest tantrum. Screaming and yelling. She drops to ground and I'm carrying her, the scooter and pushing the pram. Traffic stopped for two minutes while I struggled with her and my other two were waiting on the other side.
Last week I took her scooter away for this behavior and put her in the pram but was screaming the whole time for scooter. I again tried to reason but I can't get through to her.
I don't mind her riding her scooter across the crossing cause its not a fight. She doesn't ride fast and it's at my walking pace.
What should I do. It's a battle every morning and afternoon. I've tried everything.
It's bad. She screaming and I'm dragging her across the road in school traffic. Thats not exactly safe cause shes a runner. Help!!
