My daughter is almost 2. I can tell her the littlest thing like dont do that, you dont need that... and she cries. Public places like wedding receptions, church obviously there kids they dont want to be still but here she goes with her loud crying. We have tried ignoring and comforting and sssssshhhhhh. what do you suggest?

Thanks for all the replys they are helpful. I have an oldest son whos 4, when we had him a read everything and did everything I was suppost to. But when she came along we took things more easy with her and let her get away with more things. ya I admit it. The wyning she does is'nt really embarrassing its annoying, I just want her to stop. So with your helpful advise I just have to put my foot down. ...keep them coming.

My daughter does this and I know she's just testing me but it can still be embarrassing. Yesterday we went shopping and she ran off in the store and when I caught up with her and told her in a very pleasant voice she can't do that, she started crying and carrying on. I just picked her up and left the store, found dad and our youngest son and told them we were going to the car until they were done getting a haircut. I think it's a phase, I hope it's a phase!! :) At church or other places (family or friends houses) dad or I will take her into another room until she calms down but she doesn't get cuddled when she's acting like this but does get hugs and kisses when she calms down.
She also does this at home but I just have to remember that I'm the mom and it won't hurt her to not get her way all of the time and she does usually get over it pretty fast.
Good luck!

is the answer in the question? "she yells like i yell at her". You may want to try teaching her other ways of coping with her anger...and you may need to learn them yourself to teach them. (yes, i know, easier said than done, i'm guilty too, but i try this method as often as i can.)

I think she is trying to get attention and you should just take her out into the hallway or remove her from the problem area so she doesnt get the chance to make a big deal about it. Its probably just a phase and you shouldnt feel bad for trying to keep her afe and teach her right from wrong

I would just keep ignoring it until she realizes that crying isn't going to change your mind. I don't get embarrassed in public places. Children need to be disciplined and I think I would judge the mother who was giving into her child because of embarrassment before I would judge the mother who scolds her child for doing something that they shouldn't be doing. It's a part of life and it will pass. If it's somewhere where you need her to be quiet and she starts throwing a fit, just leave the room and let her do her thing by herself and when she calms down, go back in.
