I am having issues with my daughter who is 15 months old. Anytime I go out in public to a restaurant or go to put her in a shopping cart she throws this huge fit and starts balling and screaming and trying to flip herself out of the cart. I have talked to counselors about this, they tell me to #1 spank her butte in the bathroom and #2 leave the store. However, my daughter will throw fits no matter if she's had sleep or none at all. I can understand why she does it when she's tired, but I can have her fed and give her toys to entertain her and tell her "no" or "sit down" nothing works! The instant I pick her up she shuts right up. But I can't go on lugging her around on my hip everywhere. I'm 4 months pregant w/ our 2nd. Tonight she threw a huge fit in a restaurant.I took her to the bathroom and spanked her, but I don't feel this is the right approach for her, she's still too young to fully understand what she's doing wrong!Answer Question

Thank you Phuksbabymama, Do not spank your 15 month old for this. You should be intune to her feelings and I am sorry but you are at her mercy, if she is not feeling like staying 2 hours out or 1 hour, than you should get down to her level and give her a time limit, shemay not understand how long 20 minutes is but eventually she will, you have to start somewhere. Give her a break and for GODS SAKE follow throught and choose your battles. (Mom of two 18 and 13 girl and boy! It works! JMO P.S.S. Get a timer it works so good!!!!! :)
