    Too cute! But...I have to wonder, if that was done now....how long do you think it would take someone to call DSS to take the kid away from a "dangerous influence"? LOL!

    I loved how she got her point across without saying a word! I loved the part where the son calmly puts the package on the shelf LOL

    I did that with my kids but at home not in public. It shocks them to see what it looks like.
    It works, try it.

    LOL!

    We have a friend who has a good sense of humor. He was at the driver's license office and there was a child throwing a tantrum while in the line. He didn't know the parents of the child but proceeded to lay down on the floor and have a tantrum too. Guess he was having too much fun because when he finally looked up, the child was standing quietly back in line and he was on the floor all by himself. He got up, dusted himself off and got back in line too.

    I just looked at my boys and asked them it they would like to make it to their next b-day because they may not make it to the next 5 minutes. I used to ask them also if they would like me to make "Banshee" time. I could always be louder than they ever were. I always got my point across. Never had to beat them. They knew better than to "dare" me. I always carried out the dare and they suffered the consequences. Only took a couple of times when they were very young. I didn't have time to put up with those kind of actions. I wasn't a mean or strict mother, I was a matter of fact and no nonsense mother.

    This reminded me of my mom throwing a temper tantrum with my siblings. Worked every time.
    I might add that she did this at home.

    HAHAHA, with the kids I watched or my own we would have tantrum training. I would just scream and have them scream and then told them until they could get as loud as me and do it right they shouldn't bother at all cause it was just a waste of time and they were welcome to try if they could do it louder than me and correctly. they stopped having tantrums and never took me up on doing it better so that seemed to work. It was so funny though to see the looks on their faces when I was telling them it was okay to have one, but they would have to do in the bedroom with the door closed. That way if I could hear them through the door they would be on the right track. Actually only one kids took me up on it and that was my DH's daughter that was over visiting. She was very spoiled and that didn't fly at our house, she broke the bed slats that night jumping on the bed and having fits but after that she didn't pull it again.

    I am soooo sending this to my son and daughter-in-law. Sometimes my grandson is a bit out of control.

    I did that a time or two when my kiddies were small. My baby is now 37. I never tried it in a store, but they didn't know that I wouldn't. It really did work!

    I never had a problem with kids in teh store. Their dad always went with us and he stayed in the car. if anyone misbehaved they had to go sit with dad in the car. We never bought candy off the rack by the checkout so they never got the chance to beg for it. I think my middle child had a tantrum once and had to go to the car and he never did it again. My kids could be wild at home but they were never ever allowed to act up away from home. Respect was the top of our list.

    My son threw tantrums, too. One day he wanted to touch the neighbor man's car. AHEM. This car was always perfectly clean. So my son arranged himself on the side walk in such a way he wouldn't get hurt and threw a fit. While he was throwing the fit my elderly neighbor said his momma would fill up a quart jar with water and throw it at the kid. So we did. Well part of a jar. He threw another fit and got another jar full in the face. That was it for him, well, until he got home. He tried it again in the house and I nailed him with water and that was was the last tantrum.

    That was funny. I remember YEARS AGO as a first time parent my son saw a little girl have a tantrum and got her way in the end. I mentioned it to my hubby and told him to be prepared. Well sure enough one afternoon he tried it on me. It was so funny to watch. When he was done I very calmly gave a little laugh told him he did a good job of acting like Jenny but the answer is still no. Then we went in and had lunch. The child never did it again.
