Ok.... so one of my 18 month old twins decided recently that he wants to scream and yell everytime we go into a store. Doesn't matter what kind of store, clothes, grocery or even a toy store. He will scream and yell until the moment we walk out of the door. So I want to know if anyone else has had to go through this. I ignore him and once in a while tell him he has to stop yelling. It's quite embarassing, and I don't want to look like a bad mom ignoring my screaming child. But I know all he wants is to leave the store. I started getting in the habit of giving him my phone or keys to keep him occupied but that backfires, because it starting turning into a behavior. Do I keep ignoring the screaming until he realizes that he has no choice but to be in the store?
