My daughter is a new three year old, and she is around mostly adults. We don't go to stores very often - but she gets comments on how good she is being, when she is just doing her normal thing. When bored she talks to the store ladies, observes whatever is nearby (packages, items), counting or telling me letters and colors, or falls down in the bottom of the cart and starts to play with her hair, jacket, shoes etc. We talk back and forth constantly, and sometimes she gets loud, but a tantrum is very rare. If you were in a store and it was taking longer than usual, what would your child do? What would they do if you asked them to put back something they found and wanted? Also - please include how old your child is.
