Babycenter article on Tantrums

Do/does your child/children throw tantrums? How do you handle them?
If they throw a fit in a store, do you leave the store?

I've really never had Brandon throw a tantrum to be honest. I think he definitely knows if he acted up in public there would be he!! to pay at home, not to mention I wouldn't hesitate to spank his butt in the middle of a store, so no I probably wouldn't leave, I'd make it stop.

Does Belle throw tantrums... OH yes... she'll flatten herself out on the floor and kick her feet, cry, and show off the biggest alligator tears...

For at home Tantrums... honestly, I just ignore her. I'll tell her that I'll be ready to talk when she's done and calmed down... I'll go back to whatever I'm doing and she usually comes to me in about 5 or 10 minutes, happy and giggly as if nothing had happened...

If they happen in a store, no. I don't leave. I pull off to the side and talk to her calmly.

Lately her tantrums in stores stem around having the buckle done up on the shopping cart. She knows "Seatbelts Buckled" happens all the time in carts and in the car seat, but lately she's wanted to play with the buckle instead of wear it. So really she's just frustrated that she can't play with it. In the time it would take me to leave the store and put her back in the car, would be probably about the same time it would take for me to calm her down and make her happy again. I use to different methods in stores. I count to 10, showing her my fingers. Slowly. And I'll also try distracting her with something, like the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse song from the TV show on Disney Channel.

However I'm sure as she gets older there will be a time where I will have to leave the store, to make a point and/or teach a lesson.

Usually I will ignore them, either at home or in a store. A couple times with my dd I have left the store and brought her home as a punishment, but only when her dad was home and I could go back out to do my shopping alone.
