It was a crazy, embarrasing and feel-helpless kind of situation :(
N spotted a toy car that he wanted to touch and play with and then he refused to let go of it when we were ready to go home.
S & I haven't seen this side of him. Lately he has been throwing tantrums and showing resistance to our usual methods of distraction or discipline.
I felt so helpless. A friend's FB status came to mind - "At times I have to remind myself that I am the adult and I need to stay calm".
Finally we did shorten our trip and left the store. Once we were outside he was distracted by cars and buses and forgot about the toy.
Next time before we go out, I am going to talk to him about where we are going, what we shall be doing and what is allowed. Hopefully that shall help!
Have you ever faced such a situation with your little one(s)?
Any suggestions on handling the terrible twos?
