Most of the parents say that they are not affected by their children's tantrums. But for some including me when my son has a tantrum specially in public I wish the earth would swallow me right that moment.

Oh yeah! I hear ya!! Me too (sometimes) My worst ones come from my developmentallydelayed daughter. People don't understand that she is still just a "baby" and since she can't speak, she throws a hum-dinger of a fit when she can't tell us what she wants/needs. It could be anything from a sharp object is poking her, to a belly ache, to her being mad about not getting a drink or snack she saw someone else have. Its rough and at times I do wish the ground would open up and swallow us (but deliver us at home or something!! LOL)

Yes! When in public I feel like ALL EYES ARE ON ME and judging me as a bad parent if my child has a melt down. I always stick to me guns and follow through, but it doesn't take away the embarrassed feeling! I think that is what your post is about right? The way you feel when your child is the one?
At home, I could care less and can totally tune out a temper tantrum. "You want to throw yourself on the floor and scream, fine! I'll just step over you and carry on with what ever I have to do at that moment!" After a while my kids give up and get over it!

"Stick by your word! Be a parent what you say goes! That's why half of these kids are shootin schools and killing parents! Woman up."
I knew someone would come along and give this overly judgmental response. I guess she never feels embarrassedwhen her child acts out in public. OR, her child has never acted out in public. How lucky is that?? Whether you "do the right thing" to handle it or not, it is still embarrassing when it happens!
