This week’s topic is :
Temper Tantrums
wer
Our toddler is a month and 2 weeks from being 2! First that is just amazing, I can't believe it. Second, boy I can't imagine that her tantrums are just going to get worse! lol

Baby M is a good baby and she's very well behaved about 80% of the time, which is really good, but the other 20% she won't eat her veggies, she doesn't want to sit in her high chair, she just won't pay attention. It usually happens when we go out to eat. I have no idea why. When she shows her first signs of "I don't feel like cooperating today," I turn over to Hubs and let him know if I'm in the mood or not. Most of the time I know we have to deal with it, but you know there are those days where aren't just your day. So I'll tell him, lets just go home or tell the waitress if we can have this to go. And Hubs is so good to support me. Other times we deal with it.... ahhhh.

First we make it mandatory for her to sit in the high chair. Second she has to eat atleast half of what's on her plate. But oh boy does she put up a fight. And she loves her carbs, that's all she wants! lol We tell her what we expect and continue eating... and what does the waitress do most of the time? Bring our plates or drinks and places them infront of her. Isn't that annoying? Does that happen to anyone else. Both Hubs and I quickly move the plate/cup away. Should we tell them something? Do they not notice we have a tantrum rumbling?

I'm glad to say that most of the time by the end of the meal all is fine and daddy. Nothing got spilled and everything got eaten. However it's probably over two hours since we arrived, lol. But I thank God that she's not into the kicking and screaming phase yet and doesn't speak in complete sentences and then we'll have problems.

Just don't get me started on Little M.... she's almost 7! And she has actually gotten worse in her behavior. I blame public school. She arrived with manners and comes out with none! Hubs gets furious about that. But we stay calm with her and just show her and talk to her about what we do, what we expect and why.

Just on a note: We do not spank our children! That's all I can say about tantrums because I'm starting to get a headache just thinking about it! lol

So I have a question for ya'll. How do you deal with your kiddos and the restaurant wait staff when your toddler is going to or is having a tantrum?

Comments

  1. I take my kids out before the tantrum erupts, if possible...or right when it starts. It's so hard when you're out to eat. But for me, if they will be yelling and screaming then it's not much of a meal! Usually I can calm them down outside of the restaurant and then return. But I do ask people not to put plates and stuff in front of the 2 year old, or just immediately remove it.

  2. I dont' blame the waitress/waiter. They don't know our children or behaviors so they don't know what to look for. It would seem like it is common sense not to set the stuff down in front of the little one but they are probably trying not to forget that the next table ordered another soda, a side of Ranch, forgot to order the appetizers, etc.

  5. Yes, the food in front of the kid happens all the time, but usually it is a waitstaff person who has no experience with kids. You can remind them when you order to bring all food and drinks to you instead of the baby.

    We have not had a tantrum in a restaurant yet, but when we do - I will most likely take Squish outside until it either blows over - or we have to leave. I think that is just part of the price of having kids - cold dinners! :)

    Assuming you are in a child friendly place - you can also ask for distractions (ie crayons and such)

    As far as eating what is offered, we do the - you have to try everything, and if you don't want to eat what you have, you can be done. Even though eating out is a treat - we don't change our rules on eating. Does that make sense? Thanks for linking up!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
