No, we remove them from the situation whether it is eating or shopping and resume once they are composed. Just as if they were throwing a fit at home, they get put in their room until the fit is over.

No. I don't like hearing adults yelling an being obnoxious I'm not going to let my child be.

Now if he's hurt I console him but if he's throwing a fit we walk to the restrooms until he calms down.

Yep. But it isn't really crying. More like whining for literally a minute or two. Then she realizes we are ignoring her completely and goes on to something else. Lol.
*but she's only 2*. So we will see what is to come. Haha

Not for long..if it gets too deep in the whining stage I offer to escort her to the nearest bathroom or dressing room for an attitude adjustment and it stops like magic.

It depends on the place. He's Autistic and his crying could be for a number of reasons. If he's crying because he's overstimulated, then we usually leave. If he's crying because he's being a brat and not getting his way, then we stay. I won't cater to him if he's throwing a tantrum.

Oh hell yeah. First I try to calm them down and if that dont work they will just have to keep crying and a few minutes later they will stop. Especially if they are crying bc they cant get what they want . Actually I was in a store once when my dd 4yrs old but at the time she was like maybe 2 and to make a long story short some bitch wouldn't mind her OB bc my dd was crying . I would type it here but Its a long story lol..

Depends. If we're at Walmart and they're crying for toys, cry away kids, mommy ain't givin in. If we're at a restaurant and dd is crying to get out of her high chair, I'll usually just let her sit with me so everyone eating doesn't have to listen to her.
