Re: Punishments Outside of the Home
In that situation, I'd have either....
1.Grabbed his arm, pulled him close to my face and said "KNOCK. IT. OFF." in that gritted teeth voice. (because that was always my go to response before and it's always worked)
2. Leave dd in the play area with my friend, and taken son out to the car to sit in his carseat alone for 10 minutes. (you could sit outside the car and mess with your phone, or text someone who will talk you off the ledge)
3. If I had a stroller, his little self would have been strapped into it for the duration of the playtime... I'd have said "You are tired... you need to go to sleep...if your mood gets better, maybe you can get out of there later".
