my son is almost 3. and they have this train car that goes around knots. well today we were there we have passes. he has never been on the train.. HE LOVES TRAINs. THE min the first ride before us leaves he starts bawling his brains out. saying stop train please please stop. i love u. well my dh thinks he was being a brat. i truly think he just didnt get why it was leaving... i waited in line til it came by again 7 min. later. my dh took ds awy bc he just didnt get why it left. and couldnt stop crying i let him ride after he said sorry for screaming and give me a kiss. my husband thinks we should have just left the train ride. i think if he learns to wait .. he will learn there is a reward. how old do u think is old enough to understand waiting for a ride.? iknow some kids can wait and are 2 i see them there all the time. i just know my son is emotional. and has a hard time waiting . was he being a brat or being emotionalAnswer Question

"stop train please please stop. i love u."
This statement by your son shows that he wasn't being a brat - he really thought it was leaving him. Your DH sounds like he could learn a lesson or two on patience himself! You have to take the entirety of the situation, including your 3yr olds cries in consideration. A bratty toddler would be one who kicks screams cries and hits you because you didn't stop the train. He is crying telling the train he loves him, he doesn't understand it's coming back. Your son will learn patience - not sure your DH will....
