My 23 month old son drives us mad in public he wont sit still gets out of his high chair tries to grab everything off the table, throws tantrums if he doesn't get his own way, my husband and I always end up fighting at the end of our outting.
He's great at eating at home but in public he likes to test us any advice would be great.

How is he getting out of his high chair? - they should have buckles on them. The high-pitched screaming comes to mind.....
But yeah, I'm going to second the crayon idea, Probably eats & throws/drops them... or moving a bit before the food comes... a minute with a toddler seems like a year when he's fussy, LOL! and try to go to places that are family friendly...that will give your kid crayons or a little snack while waiting for the food.He was also rarely more hungry than he was "wanting to explore". Hehe!
But they grow out of it, thank God! :) BTW, Just teasing you, Anon. Don't take offense!

Can you let him sit in a booster? Make a big deal out it, like say oh you are such a big boy, you get a big boy seat. Also try to go out at off times like 2-4pm that way the restaurant won't be crazy busy and you won't have to wait. Good luck and remember he'll grow out of it.
