    If I know we're going to be doing something stressful, like a huge shop/back to school shopping etc I wait until a day when DH is home as he's tougher than me haha.
    I tried this a few times it didn't seem to work but maybe she was too young to understand. I'll be trying it again soon.

    All of the above. Many active I have had to crouch down to DS's level and do my low 'I mean business' voice. I also have found that if I chat with DS at other times about how it makes me feel when he plays up when we're out he listens to that. Last week DS screamed at me when I went to pick him up from daycare - I was so taken aback! Later, I told him it made me feel sad when he screamed at me, and the next day when I picked him up he said 'I am a good boy today mummy and you won't be sad'. Kids understand basic emotions so it seems to be effective at times.

    Thanks all, I'll give these a try. My DH works a lot and I have always taken them everywhere with me, with very few problems.

    The wheels seem to have fallen off just in the last few weeks and I have completely lost my confidence now.
