I searched for tantrums in stores and watched videos that were hard to believe. In one a kid took the coffee pot in a 7/11 store pored the coffee on the floor and then threw the pot down and smashed it. This is crazy!
PS: From 'Parent Magazine' how to stop tantrums Fast! None seemed fast to me.
This was #7...
Don't give in to demands. Public tantrums cause some parents to give in simply to reduce embarrassment, but this response will only serve to ensure that your child will repeat the tantrum the next time you're out. Ignore what others may say or think in such cases, and focus on your child. As calmly as possible, state your rule and get on with business: "You will not get what you want by crying and kicking. When you calm down, we can talk about it."
That in red should have been done long before entering the store. And I might be weird, but I have always sorta cared what people thought of me.
I have witnessed that in blue, and I have never known it to work. How can you state your rules through SCREAMS?
