I've got a just turned 3yo and a 4.5yo. They're pretty good at home, but when they know they can get away with things they test the boundaries at every turn! How do you discipline in public places?Answer Question

The same way I do at home. I'm not afraid to discipline my kid in public. I know I'm not abusing him. Although, he doesn't really act up in public, if he did, I'd handle it the same way I would if I were home. My son still sits in the cart, so there's really no time out. But I've popped him, and given him to the count of three, given him the look, etc.

They get their talking to, but whispered in their ear. I don't yell at them in public. They also get my meany-mommy-boy-are-you-in-trouble look, and they know they're in for it. I also find a little pinch on their tooshy gets them focused back on good behavior.
