    Then why wouldnt she have said "do you mind if he brings one home and i will bring it back. I dont have it in me for another massive battle today"

    She just seemed rude and entitled in the original post.

    This is what I thought. Perhaps she was avoiding a tantrum by planning to distract him later, then take them off him. She knows her kid best and how to handle him (I hope?).

    Surely the day care centre had a few toys to spare for her sanity though ... Really what's wrong with pocketing a couple of them that probably barely get used anyway??

    For me i see it as teaching him that if you want something regardless of who's it is, take it or pitch a fit to get your own way.

    Id prefer to deal with the tanty than teach my child stealing is ok

    Not sure if this type of thread really achieves much. Prompts people to say hateful things about people and situations they know little about. Makes me sad.
    I have a 3-year-old boy who has just started throwing some terrible tantrums, and I would not have the audacity to claim that my parenting skills led me to handle them perfectly each time. It can be very hard, we try our best. This lady and her son may very well need a friendly hand extended, rather than snide comments about future delinquency.
    I have never made comment on any thread outside of TTC and Spelling threads, but it just made me a little sad.

    I don't think this is about who handles tantrums the best. I don't see good parenting as avoiding tantrums. Good parenting is helping your child through tantrums. Not backing away from a tricky situation, which is really a teachable moment (we don't take things that do not belong to us, a pretty universal thing that needs to be taught). No one likes dealing with tantrums, but I sure as sh!t would rather deal with tantrums at age 3 than have an entitled kid who thinks he can take what does not belong to him in later years.

    If every child did this what would be left?
    All of the toys in my childcare centre were either donated or purchased by the centre or the staff for ALL of the children, not just one child who can't take the word no.
