How do you handle child tantrums in public?

Posted by   + Show Post

 How do you handle it when your child has a tantrum in public?

Is it better to get up and leave, let him have it out there so he doesn't control what you do?

What's your best option?

If their dad was with us one of us would take the child who is having a tantrum out to the car until they calmed down and the other would stay with the other kids. If I am alone with the kids and one starts to have a tantrum we leave.

I try distractions or offering a snack...but if it's a big tantrum...I leave...let them calm down and then come back.
