My boy is just a little over 2 and he LOVES the park. First thing in the morning he would chuck a tanty if we say we not going today, on our way home at 5pm at night he would chuck a tanty in the car because we are not going to the park, if we are going elsewhere, not in the direction of the park he would chuck a tanty. He knows exactly which way to go to the park!
We take him there almost everyday. So a lot of the times we would lie to him and say 'yes we are going' to stop his tanty. We only do that if nothing else works.
Would you lie to your kids to keep them quiet?
