If you're opposed to spanking DON'T ANSWER!!
Our son who's 2.5 had a tantrum while we were in the mall. After trying to get him to settle down, DH took him back out to the truck. On his way several people tried consoling our son, oh don't cry, it's okay, etc. Of course DH was embarrassed. DH waited until we got home 30+ min later to spank him. I interrupted the spanking because I felt that he should have did or said something while at the mall & not much later. Leaving the mall again he falls out again but this time I have him. I continue to walk w/him & tell him that I can't pick him up he has to walk. I kept going & talking to him about walking like a big boy. Once at the truck he didn't want to sit in the carseat so 2 pops to his butt & I put him in the seat. DH said that I should've waited to spank him because someone may see me & put me on You Tube. I hate spanking in public but what else can I do when all else fails?

I am not opposed to spanking if done correctly. As you describe it with the child being THAT young I think that waiting is wrong. If you choose to spank it is as an attention getter when it is a dangerous situation and you need an immediate response. Waiting doesnt help because the child is too young to figure out that the spanking he is getting is for something in the past.
