Toddlers can be very frustrating to parent. They want something, they scream, you give it to them, they still scream. They actually don’t know what they want, so what is it they need? Why the meltdowns? Here’s a hint, it’s something a lot more essential than a new toy or an ice cream.
Don’t you just hate when your child starts screaming in a shopping center and everyone turns to look at you?
Are you torn between doing something to pacify the child to take the onlookers attention off you, and holding your ground as you know you should to curb this behavior permanently? Despite your knowledge, do you often choose the former option anyway for fear of judgement?
