How to Deal with a Screaming Child While Shopping

How to Deal with a Screaming Child While Shopping




Your kid's having a major meltdown in a store? Here's how to take back control without losing your cool -- or your mind.
You will need
Advance planning
A cool head
Self-control
Warning: Take your child for a medical checkup if their tantrums are increasing or intensifying, especially if they are accompanied by nightmares, stomachaches, or headaches.
Step 1: Reduce the chances of your child having an outburst in the first place by making sure they're rested and well fed before setting out.
Step 2: Set a good example for your children by keeping a lid on your own temper or you'll send the message that angry outbursts are okay.
Step 3: Set expectations beforehand so children know going in what they will and will not be getting and doing. If they know what to expect, they're less inclined to go bonkers.
Step 4: Try to stop temper tantrums before they start. Offer a snack; start a silly game when they start to squirm with boredom; give them a little task to focus on if they're becoming overwhelmed with sights and sounds.
Step 5: No luck in thwarting a major meltdown? Don't make the situation worse by having your own. Tell your child in a soothing voice that you're sorry they're upset but they need to calm down.
Step 6: Your next move depends on your child's age. If they're three or under, distracting them often works. If it doesn't, or if they're older than three, remove them from the store — even if you have to abandon your shopping cart — and give them a time-out.
Tip: Never give in! You don't want to teach your children that pitching a fit is an efficient way to get what they want.
Step 7: Explain the consequences of them continuing the tantrum, like you'll take them home or they won't get something you promised them.
Tip: Make sure other family members don't undermine you by waiving the punishment.
Step 8: Speak softly and tell them that you understand their frustration. If they'll let you, hold them. Don't expect them to calm immediately, but follow through with the punishment if they continue to pitch a fit.
Step 9: Later, once your child is totally calm, explain that you'll no longer be able to take them shopping with you if they misbehave. Then hug it out; it's important that your child know that even if you don't like their behavior, you still love them.
Did You Know? Thirteen percent of children between ages two and four have one or two temper tantrums a day.
