  • No, that would kinda get annoying to the kid.

  • No, my daughter is two and if she requests anything (within reason) I don't turn her down.

  • I always had to take mine to the store. I let them pick out a few things. Then I didn't have to say no. Ok you can decide which cereal, cookies etc. today.

  • I let ds help make decisions on what we are buying for the house. this makes it so he doesn't ask for things like toys/candy. also if I know I'm going by the toy section I will tell him you can play for x amount of time but we are not buying today. he plays I give him a heads up on how many more minutes then when its time to go I tell him to say good bye to the toys and that we will see them another day. very effective.

  • my son usually asks for green beans or broccoli and my daughter a banana at the grocery store, so i always say yes. But when we are at the other stores, we only go if the kids need new clothes, and then i let them pick out their outfits. they rarely want toys,

  • LOL - why deny him the opportunity to explore and learn about his environment. My son's learned a lot about the grocery store and is very familiar with it all (he could probably find stuff before I can at this point). Doesn't mean I give him whatever he wants and sometimes No is the appropriate answer, but mostly I allow him to explore or re-direct him to keep him focused on a task at hand (I don't always have time to lolly-gag at the store).
