Could someone please give me some advice on how to handle tantrums in public. I never experienced this with my son and I am not used to it at all. How do you deal with it? Thanks so much!

If I'm with my husband, one of us will take our daughter outside to scream all she wants but we just usually sit by her and watch other people...ignore her as best as possible-this includes going out to dinner at a restaurant, not just stores. If I'm alone in a store, I will leave as soon as I can. My daughter(2) has had a tatrum in public to the point where she was on the floor crying but I was checking out and ignoreing her and she stopped withing seconds when she realized I wasn't paying any attention to her. If your food shopping, redirect and let them help. Let them put something in the cart, let them hold something....let them help! Somedays just aren't worth it. Good luck.
