I m new at parenting but I have my way to deal with my DD tantrums, I won't give in, by now she knows when I say No I mean it, today she tried for a candy on the check out (classic kids move lol) So I said NO and she was about to start to whimper when I said: if you start to cry not only you are not going to get the candy, you won't see your cartoon for today, so do not cry! she looked at me with those big eyes of her and said sorry mommy and the whimpering stops, Then I go out of the store and the girl who was bagging the groceries ran after me and said the gentleman behind you bought this for the baby, (the dam candy)I think his intentions were good but I don't think I was been mean, I just can't buy everything she ask just because she was going to cry. What is your opinion ladies?

I think that his intentions were good but no I wouldn't butt in like that. If I KNEW you and lets say, I knew you had to say no because the candy barwasn't affordable then I would buy it and discreetly give it to you to give to her at your discretion. My kids ask for things all the time that they don't get. I wouldn't be pissed off in this situation but I would have returned the candy bar/not accepted it. As good as intentions can be sometimes, it's still undermining your authority in my opinion.

Next question overall
Would you care of the age difference...and would you keep it a secret?
