So I had a doctors appointment today and I couldn't get anyone to babysit DD 2 years old so I took her with me.
She has just entered that phase of power tantrums and I feel like I can't take her anywhere.
I took some toys and snacks to entertain her and for the first couple of minutes she was fine, then she started going through my bag, taking out things and throwing them all around, when I said no she can't play with that because it's dangerous and took the bag away and the dangerous items she was playing with (medication, pack of mints she could choke on) she completely lost it. She was on the floor screaming at the top of her lungs. I tried ignoring her but it only ramped up and eventually I had to just rush out of there.
I was beyond mortified. I have recently been diagnosed with a serious condition and I will be having many more appointments in the near future and besides my DH and occasionally my Mum I have no one to ask to babysit. Any suggestions for how I can manage this behaviour in the future, after the morning I had I'm willing to take any and all advice offered!
