My 24 month old and I are in line at the store waiting to check out and he's getting a new toy, which he is holding. When we get up to the register I explain to him that I have to give it to the cashier for a second so I can pay for it but he will get it right back. But, as soon as I take it for him he screams bloody murder. Should I
A.) Give it right back (after it's scanned) and tell him that's all I needed and he stops screaming (which is what I do/did) or
B.) Tell him that because he screamed, he now has to wait until we get home to play with the toy and leave the store with him screaming his head off
Or something else? And by giving it back to him am I teaching him it is okay to scream when he's mad?
Just looking for opinions! No need to be rude here.
