I know its normal but I almsot loathe going to the library every week because my son does not sit and listen to the stories. He plays with the blinds, knocks books off the sheves and more. When we go to the grocery store, he wants to get out the cart and dart off. I chase him and he thinks its a game. WHat do I do? I try removing him from the sitation and speaking to him but its a game to him it seems. I know he cant help it though. He is used to freedom at home-not holding my hand and such...any advice on what to do when he gets crazy?
Do most people stop taking their kids to restaurants due to them wanting to get out the high chair? Is there a trick to keep going?
