I have decided to ask for some advice about my 21mth old ds3, and his antics while grocery shopping. I live in western QLD with the nearest grocery shop a half hour drive away. I have a very busy husband who farms, so I always need to take my kids shopping with me.
The problem has started the last few times we have been shopping. My ds3 screams and cries when I try to put him in the trolley seat. I am usually filling the trolley, so need all the room in the back. If I let him walk, of course he runs away and thinks it's a game,then I am chasing him. Then my ds2 joins in the fun.
We went shopping today, so I thought I would try him in one of those harness backpacks. Once he realised he couldn't get away he cried and screamed more. I ended up picking him up, and tried to manoeuvre the trolley, not fun. So once again it was a stressful shopping trip, with me forgetting some important items due to my loud toddler. And I just loved getting stared at with no one offering to help. Any suggestions???
