And no, I don't care.
My son is 2, and has become quite the little hellion. And hes taken a liking to throw fits in public, one recently was, He threw a fit in the store because I wouldn't let him bring his toys into the store, for him to drop them every 10 seconds on "accident". So before we even got into the store, he was screaming. So we waited for him to calm down before we entered the store...and he did, but then we got into the store, and he started it up again. So, I just rushed through my shopping, even forgetting a few things because I just didn't want to deal with people looking at me like I'm a horrible parent.
Then a couple of days later he threw another fit in the store, because he was grabbing at things, and I told him not to, so that ensued a fit....but this time, I just didn't care. And I told him "You can cry if you want to, but you're still not going to grab at things." And that was that, and I just let him cry. I got the looks from people, which I just shot back a sarcastic smile, and I just stopped giving a shit about what other people are thinking...I feel so much better. Because really, I don't give a shit about what anyone thinks...why I worried about it in the first place, I have no idea. I mean, don't get me wrong...I'm sorry my kids crying is bothering you in the slightest, but really, why are you letting a little toddler throwing a fit bother you, if it bothers you so much that you have to throw a young mother looks like shes a horrible parent...really, you're no better than the toddler throwing a fit.
It actually made me realize how much we complain about stupid stuff that has no impact on our lives, but we complain about it because we're fucking idiots.
So if you see me walking down an aisle, ignoring my screaming child....know that I do not care, and it really is the fastest way to get him to stop throwing his tantrum. Have a nice day...
