  • My mother use to tell us if we embarrass her she will embarrass us and she showed us how she would embarass us too when we ever showed out in public.

    I have told my son the same thing, he knows he better be in line.

  • That helps. I disciplined my boys at home the same way I did when out at stores/offices/etc.: warnings followed by a time out. It worked very well. Do you have anything established for discipline in your home? If yes, how do they respond?

    Another thing to keep in mind - don't over-estimate their ability to keep still. Kids of that age will need to have something to keep themselves occupied if an errand is going to take longer than 15 minutes or so.
