If a 2 year old is having a "strong tantrum" at the Public Library....Should the mother step outside with the toddler?

  • Yes. I completely understand the whole "ignore them" thing. But, even when my kids were that age, I also understood that there was a time and a place where ignoring them was the appropriate thing to do (at home, for example) and where removing them from the environment and then dealing with the issue - whether ignoring it or disciplining them, or taking them home for a nap, or whatever, was appropriate, so as to not subject everyone else to my screaming child.

    The library would be one such place.

  • Yes absolutely. She needs to know that this kind of behavior is not tolerable in public, and removing her is the best way to do that. Especially in a library!

  • YES, I did this with my toddler he quickly realized that it's not acceptable behavior.

  • Of course. It's more about out of respect to others.

  • Yes! Take them outside and let them have their fit on the sidewalk or something.
