I took my 5 year old son to our community pool with our neighbor and her son. We go often during the summer. I truly hate to say this, but today, my son really embarrassed me. While in the pool, he was singing, humming, splashing NON-STOP. The other kids were staring at him and so were the parents. It was like a spectacle. All of my attemps to have him stop failed. He threw toys, tried pouring water on people and was just a mess. I felt so stupid constantly calling his name. I had him sit with me a few times and had many talks with him. I really wanted to leave right away, but didn't want to leave my neighbor who had come with me. How do you handle situations like this? I felt so isolated. I felt like other parents were judging me and my son and I basically wanted to hide under a rock somewhere. When we got home, I put my son in a time-out and we had a looooooooong talk. It makes me not want to take him to the pool again. Situations like this really make me want to medicate him because trying to do anything fun with him is emotionally draining. Sorry for the rant, I'm just curious if anyone has any advice and how they would handle a situation like this.
