Two years ago I was guilty of being on of those people who give parents dirty looks when they would (couldn't) control their children...NOW I'M ONE OF THEM! It's funny how life changes after you have kids of your own and realize that "Kids will be Kids". I do, however, try to control as much as I can. Numerous times I have gotten a box as soon as my meal had come if we are eating out, I have left my cart in the middle of stores, and I have canceled plans on really bad days. I'm sure in 10 years I'll look back on all of these times at how hard I had thought it was and laugh! But not now!
Are your kids as bad as mine? I swear they team up against me! Emma will scream and Riley will throw a tantrum. And it never fails...one after the other or together! When this happens, I breathe and repeat "I love my children, I love my children, I love my children".
So, here is my question. How do you control your children? Have you found anything that works? And please hurry! Here comes another tantrum! Hahaha!
