How??????

When you have shown total disapproval to a person about their decision, they still go ahead with it and even still have the audacity to get help from you to accomplish it!!!

A child at a store started whining about wanting a toy which grew into a full fledged tandrum and the mother was calmly ignoring the screams. The child's cries were tugging at my heart. But had I been in that mom's shoes, my expression of 'ellum kollum' exploding would be hard to hide!

There are smart toddlers who break the seal right at the store, leaving the parents with no other alternative but to buy the item.

I know. How do people manage a calm exterior when their kids are acting so? I am definitely the ellum kollum type :-)

I also wonder about that.How some can put up with all this?I love shopping alone.If given a chance I will never take my kids for shopping.If they try to pull my leg,the next minute iam out of the shopping mall.I have no patience.:(
on the other way my husband will try to reason with them.
