HELP! I know my son is almost two (next month yikes!) but I guess when it comes to the "terrible twos" I had no idea what I was getting myself into.
Every time we go to the grocery store he trows a fit. As soon as I put him in the shopping cart, he throws a fit. When was past a certain food that he wants (strawberries) he throws a HUGE fit. He's always unhappy the whole time we are there.
So I thought to myself what about bringing snacks with me that he can munch on, like his beloved strawberries? NOPE he still throws fits. I get very stern with him as soon as he sits in the cart and I let him know that he needs to be a good boy but it doesn't seem to help.
He has done this now for the past four trips. Last night I was so close to having an anxiety attack. He was stressing me out, I couldn't finish my shopping, we got in the car, drove to McDonald's and I bought myself a Carmel Frappe and got my DS some juice! When I got home I was cooled off enough to tell my husband that I am NOT going grocery shopping with DS anytime in the future and that grocery shopping will be done only on the weekends for now!
Okay mommas...I need some advice. How do you handle these tantrams? Do your little ones throw fits at the store? What do you do when they do?
