You are not a bad mom for stopping their tantrums in public. And don't forget that the people who stare were also once children.

From my experience of helping raise 7children and have my own I have only had two act out in public all the time ,,one ended up later being diagnosed adhd the other ODD
I found no matter what age I always treated the children the same
Telling them in a calm quite voice how I expect them to behave. ..when inside place if behavior issues came about I would quitely remind them what I expect . If child started to get to loud we would leave ..after a few times them learning they will not get what they want if they are being loud , having a temper tantrum, if you are very consistent with your actions the children will learn what behavior is ok where...

My son is now 4 and its alot better. He listens 99% of the time when i tell him something. Going out in public is no problem at all. Occasionally he will want a toy but I tell him no and he doesn't act up at all. So don't worry things will get easier when he gets older!

This just reminds me of when my son was 2..we were in a store where they have these huge metal baskets where the items are in. All of a sudden I couldn't find my son. Then an old woman got a huge fright,because my son went under that basket and she was going through the stuff and nearly had a heart attack when she saw two eyes looking at her from under the basket. I was glad to find him but I felt bad for the lady. But after the first shock I apologized and we both had to laugh about it.

It's worse watching a parent give in to a child just to stop its tantrums!
