Being a single mom I take DS with me everywhere. When i go shopping its because i need things not because i want. Sometimes he decides to act up because he doesn't want to be there. I will take him outside or to a corner and give him quiet time this has been working. He would be getting his way if I left too which doesn't fly with me.

With the exception of my toddler my other 2 are older and don't act up anymore. I will say that I have walked away from them when they use to act up or simply leave my entire cart with their beloved items and walk out the store. They knew they were in sooooo much trouble when that happened, lol. They never acted up again.

It's tough all around... I don't miss that phase, but I will have to buckle down because my toddler is starting to act up in stores now :(. A 10yr age gap between my oldest and my youngest is a total reality check for me.

Depends on how they are acting up. Just whining, I ignore it.

If it gets bad we go to car and wait it out. Then return to shopping.

I leave with them. I just leave everything in my basket and leave.

My kids are (thankfully) very well behaved and I've never had this problem. Hoping my next will be the same, lol.

thankfully they are pretty well behaved but there has been a few times that i've simple left the store, no matter how much was in my cart.   i'm not one to keep giving warnings & have them disrupting everyone else in the store

My son is allowed to walk beside me until he misbehaves. If he misbehaves, he gets placed into the basket while I finish my shopping.

When they were younger they would get put in the cart. Now thankfully they know better! They are 9 and 6. They learned by the age of 3 how they had to behave in a store
