I take hannah out everyday. Between homeschool co ops, moms group gatherings, gymnastics and then doing all the things that we enjoy doing ( today we went bowling lol) plus all te nessecary things like grocery shoppinh we are out everyday. But there are many hours in a day and even with daily outings we are hOme for a number of hours and she has lots of time to play at home. She is also an only child so learning to entertain herself is a nessecity lol

It's just different strokes for different folks

That would make sense but there are kids who truly just don't care about the punishment.

If you don't take your one child grocery shopping because it's not something you are prepared to handle at the moment then THANK YOU


And that goes for ANYPLACE, not just the store -- especially restaurants. If parents don't want to deal with their own kids in a restaurant (or anyplace, for that matter), hire a sitter, don't leave it to everyone else in the place to deal with your little hellion. Sure, even the best behaved kid can have an off day, or just get a wild hair, and most of us understand, but what I refuse to be understanding about is when the parent ignores it or even sits there and laughs at it when their kid is inflicting themselves on others.

we thought that about Morgan until we found the water bottle thing out randomly. He was throwing a (normal) tantrum and we took his water bottle and told him if he didnt chill he wouldnt get it back he shut right up LOL.

I hope when we have a kid I am able to take them places. My mom took me everywhere when I was little. My dad didn't like to take care of me alone, so unless it was work, my mom took me. My grandparents took me to nice restaurants and stuff when I was a toddler and my mom claims I did fine.

Sadly we cant do restaurants with Morgan because he goes into overload He has to be able to get up and move while hes eating or he overloads (still havent figured that one out) so we do the two places here that still have playplaces or eat at home.

Briggs gets out for 5-6 hours a day every day or he goes freaking nuts in the house and breaks crap from being hyper. LOL. But I take him places he can just run, kick up dirt and be silly instead of where he needs to be structured.

Take for example today. I had no help. I have to go to a maternity appointment. Weighing myself wasn't going to happen because the little bus I get on is not very stroller friendly so its only a carrier. I can't weigh myself with him in the carrier and he doesn't understand how to stand still. Then he decides he is going to boogie off with one of the wheely chairs the doctors sit on. Then I sit on it because he won't listen to no. Then he just pushes me around the room he's not supposed to be in through curtians while laughing.

Ha he's such a handful. He is just out to have a good time. None of this is to be bad. He doesn't understand language very well yet and I'm still working on developing his listening skills. Rather than getting frustrated with him I tend to just redirect and make something else more fun because that is what works for my child. I bet people think I am the biggest pushover and the worst mother in the world. But hey, I need my sanity too and it's what gets us through the day.

The thing is, you're DOING something, paying attention. I don't care how wild a kid is as long as the parent(s) is/are aware and making an effort, especially if it's something intelligent like redirecting and working with the child.

But I totally understand when it's all too much and the dreaded TRIP TO THE CAR happens

We couldn't go out to restaurants until my sister was well over four. She'd come unglued. Temper tantrums -- full on screaming, purple-faced, flailing, hitting . . . real beauts. At least she timed it before we'd order, lol.

Yep redirecting is something I use it with Morgan when I remember to grab something to redirect him too. Also dr stools good luck lol. Those I swear are kid magnets. My midwife even said the same thing.

Morgan is bad in restaurants because he wants all the food lol. he gets SOOOOOOOOO focused about it that the SECOND i mention dinner he is in his seat wanthing it NOW. I have to Ft. Know my kitchen differently daily because of how he is with food.
