Quoting Judes Mommy 7-14-09:" Hey ladies, My 3 year old has been screaming in public when I take him out, not crying just screaming. ... [snip!] ... bathroom for a timeout. He keeps doing it though, how can I get him to stop this behavior? Should I keep up with the timeouts?"
I think our kid is the same exact age, my son was born 7/14/09.
But when we go out shopping I
1) either take him my kindle so he can play games or
2) get him involved in what I am buying. Tell him about the colors and I ask him to grab me number of things. He likes being the helper.
But when he does get moody, I try to calm him down or leave and come back another day. :/ sucks but I cant even be patient and calm when he is being a lil' punk.
