I am interested in any tips you mommies may have for dealing with tantrums, especially outside the home (stores, etc). I am noticing that Pavan is more likely to have these when he is hungry but sometimes they happen even otherwise. For example the other day since he was feeling lazy and did not want to go to daycare in the morning (wanted to go shopping instead) I promised to take him shopping in the evening. As promised I took him shopping on the way back home from daycare (he loves to sit and "drive" in the shopping carts that look like little cars), we went around some aisles and I bought him a chocolate milk (he usually has one on the ride home most days). When checking out he saw some candy/chocolate and wanted to buy that. I said no, we do have some candy at home and he could have that after dinner. But then it started. We ended up waiting for half an hour waiting outside in the parking lot since he refused to get into the car.... I think one reason was his usual schedule of coming home from daycare was broken, and he probably go too excited... But any of you face these situations? Any tips to deal with this?
