My 2yr old son is terrible in public! It seems like he know that since he is in public I can't touch him. If you wondering yes I do spank if he needs it, and I don't do it out of anger. I only spank if he is messing with the stove, plug, or anything that can put him in danger. Back to the subject, it seems like as soon as we walk in the doors of the store he starts screaming and kicking. It gets to the point where I don't want to go anywhere with him. After about ten minutes I can get him to calm down, but when hubby is with us he goes crazy. Last week went to a furniture store and he was just running around like a chicken with it head cut off. I tried to make him sit down, but its kind of hard when you have a baby on one arm. Hubby just acts like there is nothing is wrong. Some how while we was talkiing to the sales person he found a way to open the door and run out into the parking lot. Hubby ran after him and got him and I gave the baby to hubby and took ds out to the car and spanked his butt. The other day I had to take him out of the store numerous time because he was throwing a fit. I am at that point where I tried everything and nothing is working. What do you ladies suggest?Answer Question

I have always dropped what I was doing and taken mine to the nearest bathroom and disciplined him accordingly. Now all I have to say it "do you need me to take you to the bathroom?" and he immediately stops the bad behavior and says no. It has to be consistent too, you can't just take him to the bathroom sometimes and not others.
