How do you ladies deal with 2yo public tantrums? My ds threw thee most massive fit in the grocery store today I mean screaming like he was getting brutally beaten all because he didn't want to wear his shoes. The entire shopping trip I was cringing! You could hear him screaming throughout the entire store (he's always had really good lungs lol) what do you ladies do when this happens? Especially in a public setting and the child is inconsolable?

I usually say "enough" in a stern voice. It's always been enough to stop it.

I tried it makes it worse.

I would sit him down on the floor for a time out. We will stay right where we are until he stops then resume shopping

Ds hasn't done that yet thankfully. I try to arrange any trips out of the house around his schedule.
