Toddler Tantrums in Public


Tantrums in public are the safest and most embarrassing places to have one. Safest because a parent knows all eyes are on them; embarrassing because a parent knows all eyes are on them. The child does not care how a parent looks to others; they are only concerned about themselves.

When you see or hear a parent struggling with a child at full throttle you can help be giving words of encouragement, empathy or praise for their strength in dealing with this awful experience. Say to the parent, “Your child has the prettiest eyes” or “Shopping can be very tiring for little ones.”

Never say anything to goad a parent toward abusing the child.
