Quoting Judes Mommy 7-14-09:" Good idea, but can't help to feel a little embarrassed when his screams echo throughout the whole store, ... [snip!] ... store, i've even had some people tell me to "shut that kid up" I know I should ignore them but it still gets on my nerves.."


Tell them to mind their own business. I've even gone so far as telling one old bat that if her husband plowed her more she wouldn't be such a bitter old b***h.

Quoting Judes Mommy 7-14-09:" Do you do this everytime you act up? I can't be bribing him everytime.."


Yes. I bribe them with something I was already going to get. Even silly stuff like one day I was going to buy tissues and I ended up buying ones with barn animals on them because the girls thought they were cute and it kept them happy and they weren't any more expensive than the other brand I'd intended on buying. You just make it fun for them. I've even gotten them excited about hot dogs haha.

Haha me too. I think I told Will the other day " if you don't stay right next to me I'm going to ask the cashier to put the hotdogs back".

Quoting Judes Mommy 7-14-09:" Hey ladies, My 3 year old has been screaming in public when I take him out, not crying just screaming. ... [snip!] ... bathroom for a timeout. He keeps doing it though, how can I get him to stop this behavior? Should I keep up with the timeouts?"


I think our kid is the same exact age, my son was born 7/14/09.



But when we go out shopping I
1) either take him my kindle so he can play games or
2) get him involved in what I am buying. Tell him about the colors and I ask him to grab me number of things. He likes being the helper.



But when he does get moody, I try to calm him down or leave and come back another day. :/ sucks but I cant even be patient and calm when he is being a lil' punk.
