Who is the parent? You have to have some consequences for his behaviour and stick to it. What consequences do you currently have in place? Believe it or not, I've even done time out at the grocery store. It IS possible to discipline your child when you are out and have very clear consequences for the behaviours. Also, consider what is causing these tantrums. Kids don't just throw a tantrum for no reason. For instance, is it because he wants something? Is is because he's tired? Hungry? You need to factor these things in when you go out. Finally, when you go out and he DOES behave, make sure you reward that behaviour as it will start to make the connection for him that this is how he should behave.

So start enforcing some consistent discipline. Quit letting him rule you
