I’m a mom – how I make sure my toddler never has embarrassing grocery store tantrums and it always works

NOBODY wants to hear a child going on a rampage in the grocery store, let alone a mother facing the death anyone could give her for her crying baby.

Luckily, one mother shared the steps she takes with her baby to ensure a tantrum-free trip to the store.

A TikTok user shared some tips for avoiding a grocery store tantrum

Maternal and child development expert, Lauren Mejia, revealed exactly how she does it on a social media videotapes shared with her 416,000 followers.

Before entering any store, Lauren recommends sitting in the car with your child and giving brief but clear instructions.

Inside the store, she says, having a visual list of essential grocery items is key.

While a visual grocery list isn’t anything special for adults, using the list can be super interactive and highly educational for your child.

According to Lauren, another way to get kids involved in this process is to allow them to choose the flavor they want for their snacks.

Once everything on the list has been selected, she says allowing your child to help with the self-testing process keeps them engaged in the experience.

Lauren further demonstrates the check-in process in the video by allowing her child to scan a box of crackers.

When she finally stopped for a cup of coffee, Lauren showed she’d kept her baby in one spot by asking him to stand on a patch on the ground.

This ensures that the child is unobstructed and in one place at the same time.

Some fellow parents marveled at Lauren’s grocery shopping strategy.

One parent wrote: “Picture listings are genius. I totally do this!!!”

A second said: “Good job, Mom! We did the same.

“It makes the trip so much easier!”

However, some alternative methods are suggested to be taken if tantrums begin.

“Or you can be like my mother.

One user suggested: “Be a strong parent who won’t back down from your toddler’s demands”.

While this mom shared how to avoid tantrums in the grocery store, a fellow parent revealed the secret to a tantrum-free car trip.

The mom says her “number one” tip for a peaceful road trip with her toddler is to travel at night.

While it’s not the most convenient time to drive for hours, the fellow mother further explained why it’s key.

“There’s nothing more relaxing for all involved and it makes for smoother (and more peaceful) trips,” she told The Sun.

According to Lauren, visual prints of grocery lists are ideal.
