    Default Extreme tantrums, help !

    I took my son for a walk tonight, it was a nice walk at first but when I said it is getting late lets go home, he threw tantrum just in the middle of a quite street. I tried to explain to him why we were going back, he won't stop. I tried to walk a few meters away pretending I was leaving then, didn't work. He was crying so loud and wouldn't move. I can see people were looking out of their Windows, some even walked out of their houses to see what was going on. I didn't have anything to bribe him. I was so embarrassed ! At last I grabbed him with him screaming and arching his back and walked a few blocks theat way to home. I felt like I was stealing someone's baby ! He cried for a good half an hour at home before stopping. This happened a few times at the shopping centre and at home happens almost every day. Please help me, how can I deal with extreme tantrums , especially when out ?

    It's normal for a 1-3 yo. Just pick him up and take him home screaming and smile at the observers embarrassing for sure but quite normal.
    You should have seen the tanty my 2yo threw because we left the dinosaur display at the shops...omg!!! Lol

    I remember many a time walking with 2 screaming toddlers through shopping centres (one under each arm) sometimes in tears myself, trying to get somewhere private away from all the stares to compose myself. Thankfully those tears and tantrums are behind us now but they are pretty hard to deal with. If I ever see a mum with a tantruming toddler I always give a sympathetic smile. wish I had some magic advice but its a stage and it will pass eventually...

    My DD had such bad tantrums she damaged her vocal cords in the end. She had one once that went for 4 HOURS!!! And nothing worked. Nothing. ( I ended up calling DH at work in tears and took her to see him). She's grown out of them now but if she does get on a role she can go for over an hour. Not much help only saying...I've been there!!
