Not embarrassed by temper tantrums.


Does anyone else not get embarrassed when their LO has a tantrum?

Tobias is slowly coming out of them, however he had a humdinger the other day in tesco.

However, I knew that I was dealing with it the best way I could and so couldn't give a stuff what other people think.

I have been in the middle of the shopping centre and had him in time out for running away as well.

Me! I don't I just tend to ignore the screaming or whatever and act like nothing is going on and she soon realises that I'm not going to give in. Sod other people, better than effing and blinding at your kids in public like I saw the other day xx

I dont care either. I'll put her in time out wherever she is and really wished all parents would do the same. So what they're in public, a child still needs the same boundaries as at home.

Summer's never really been one for tantrums but I just let her get on with it. if she wants to act like a baby she can go ahead

I ddon't when its in the supermarket or shopping etc and its nobody I know. I do find it much harder when its outside nursery and all the other parents can see or with family.

Worse one ever was a mega tantrum in a restaurant when out with my parents in law. They just sat and hid behind their menus while Tom screamed and was totally out of control for about 20 mins. They were clearly embarrassed and pretended it was nothing to do with them. There wasn't a lot they could have done to help but at least my parents would have offered to take him outside or tried to help. Really annoyed me!

Not any more, I used to when we were stuck on the bus and scream the whole journey home but I would still try and time her out (as best you on a bus). I may have been embarrassed but I still adressed her behaviour, she needed / needs to know what is and isnt acceptable anywhere. It doesn't bother me now, I just needed the practice back then and I'm glad i stuck with it.

Nope! You have at it! You want to scream and kick the floor? Go for it but you will get that time out in the frozen food section lol.

One that is harder for me is at restaurants we usually leave and stand outside. She can have it there and when she is ready and composed we can go back in.

I dont get them outside when we go out but can happen in the house. Sadly my relatives will bark and intervene to which I take my child and they calm down in a mo. They have always had valid reason to be upset and find myself explaining to people they are upset because ie you are leaving, you took their toy and have a right to be. So I dont get embarrassed.

Not really. I'd be embarrassed in a quiet place if people were looking but that's never happened.

It depends how bad it is. If its just shouting and jumping up and down, no. On the few times Ruby's hit out and lost it big time then yes I do want he ground to swallow me up

I wish I didn't, but I struggle with social anxiety anyway, so any situation that puts focus on me is hard. I also know that the way I deal with Alice isn't conventional, so I get added raised eyebrows and tuts for not doing time out etc.
