How do you react to your child’s agonizing screaming and yelling? I once promised myself that I wouldn’t be that parent to let my child cry out loud in public. The moment I heard such screams I would usually say, “When I have kids they’ll never be that way!!!” Well, the time has come and I am now a mother to a 2 year old hyper-hyper boy. And, guess what? He yells in public… surprise-surprise! And, my reaction you ask? Well, I used to turn away and ignore him, much like the parents I would roll my eyes at. I didn’t realize I was doing this until my Dad yelled at me to do something (irony). Oh right, my son and I aren’t the only two people in the mall. So, now… I get down on my knees and give my hyper-active son a simple, “Stop it” and guess what? That works for him! Praise the Lord! I’m just wondering what other parents do to shut up their kids.
