Hi, I'm a first time mom and my ds is 15 months.
We've just experienced our first temper tantrum whi8le out shopping, and I was completely lost!!
I let him out of the stroller so he could see the ducks, just like we always do, the minut he got out, he turns and looks at me, I go to pick him up so we can look over the wall... he just starts screaming, rolling around on the floor, proper screaming, I picked him up and tried to put him back in the stroller, but I can't, he's arching his back and throwing a fit. I could not pin him down.
I gave up and tried to carry him, his kicking and screaming was too much and I put him down, I just let him tantrum it out (I had no idea really what to do, my advances were met by screams and him running away and rolling on the floor)
After he calmed down, I went to take his hand to walk with me (like always) He just started again, I had no clue what to do. So I picked him up, in a firm grip and carried him home... How else should I deal with this?
He was not tired or hungry, just had lunch and a nap, I really have no clue as to what caused it :/
Any advice would be great!
