I hear my son and his wife complain about their son ( will be 3 in about 4 months ) acting out in stores, such as Walmart and grocery stores. They allow him to walk but most times he runs, rolls on the floor, plays, tries to tear things up and pitches a fit on the floor if they try to make him come back or stop. I guess I am old school, I always put my kids in the buggy, at least until 4 years old. I know they are suppose to learn how to behave and walk in stores but I just waited till at least 4 years old to teach that. Opinions please.Answer Question

It depends, if my husband goes with us then our son is allowed to walk, holding hands with my husband or I. If I am the only one going to the store then he usually sits in the cart. But for being 2 years old, he is doing really good. He knows that if he grabs something off the shelves or anything of that nature he is going to have to sit in the cart. He is very well behaved when we go in public. He is actually very well behaved anyways even when we are at home.

When my kids were 2,and 3. If they fit in the seat I put them there. To keep them out of the way. So I wouldn't have to keep track of them. Why make shopping harder then you have to.
