  • Try to get some one to watch them if possible. If not Take them to the toy aisle and let them piuck a toy to play with while in the store. and if they are good maybe the toy could be an award.

  • I bring my mom. Now that I'm not a teen I appreciate her advise (whether /i listen or not) and she keeps my son occupied.

  • I have my DH watch the kids so I can go by myself.

  • DH = dear husband, darn husband

    The few times I HAD to take the kids with me to shop for some clothes for myself I usually bribed them with a nice lunch stop! I rarely took them with me.

  • Shop online. That's what I do. I have never taken my kids with me.

  • Me. DH. and dd go together alot...
    Going early in the morning after they had breakfast is good. since its the start of the day they are more likely to listen. If possible give them a job to hold something. look for a certain color..
    Its hard. My dd is 4yo & she straight up doesnt like to shop. for her. for me. for food... lol.. so its stressful & i only shop for short spurts of time..

  • I either shop online or wait a year if need be before I would take them anywhere like that. Have a neighbor sit with them.
