does your little one have many tantrums in public?

Gaby has had 3 or 4 - and that's 3-4 too many I hate the looks people give me when she has a tanty - it's like if you just ignore the kid, the people are looking at you as if to say "don't ignore her" - and if you try to talk to them etc, they look at you as if to say "just ignore her"

When they were younger, but I pulled that "ok by, mummy is going home then" and hid behind something, once they relised that I wasn't there the mood changes. And if they didn't stop I would just put everything down and leave the shops, straight homE and straight to bed for kiddies! Or I pull the whole, "look at all the people lookin at you, oh wow they are laughing at the silly kid crying on the floor, HEY EVERYONE LOOK OVER HERE THERE IS A KID CHUCKING A TANTI!"

It does drive me nuts the stairs you get, but I have also had a lady say "I was there a couple years ago, don't stress everyone goes through it" and that made me feel better. To the people staring and judging you just feel like yelling at them too.
