Me, I'd ignore them until they'd finished. I don't reason with the unreasonable.

Is this from the Jason Manford photo?
I'm easily embarrassed so think I would pick him out and carry him out but I suppose I don't know until it happens!

Haha, yes! Can't believe what that silly woman wrote.
I would do this:

I walk away and leave him but somewhere I can see him. What's the crack with this photo?

This photo: www.facebook.com/photo.php
Jason Manford's girl was having a strop about not being allowed a pair of wellies so he left her stropping on the floor of John Lewis. Someone commented that he shouldn't be allowed to have kids if he let them lie on a dirty floor like that...

The actual comment was:
"Wow what a parent! Leaving your two year old on the dirty floor of a store to take a photo and put it on facebook....some ppl don't deserve to be parents"

What a t!t the commenter is, it is called 'not rising to the bait' and exactly what I would do unless they were causing a real hazard to other people or themselves.

If mine did that, i'd leave them there. Seeing my friends daughter tantrum like that, she made he worse by trying to reason with her.

G has only had one massive strop in a shop. She didnt throw herself on the floor but was hysterical so i went and sat on a seat close to where she was and told her to let me know when she'd finished and i pretended to sit down and read. Only took a couple of minutes for her to come over and say sorry. She's never done it since!
Sounds like the person who comnented on that photo doesnt have kids! Dirty floor?! More dirt and germs in pretty much any playground!

Ha, you'd think they didn't have kids by that comment wouldn't you. But this was their reply to the many critical responses:
Wow, I have four kids and I regularly smack their ars*s so no they don't ever paddy! My two year old was taught the meanin of no at an early age. You pick them up and don't let them go until they stop not f*cking leave them on a DIRTY FLOOR - they may have cleaners that clean ever evening but think of all the ppl walking in there with sh*t on their shoes! Oh and for all your info the angelfairydust in my name is the name of my shop so get a grip!!

Pah, bit of dirt does them good...

Harry did it maybe twice. I wandered off (but stayed close) and showed him no attention. It got boring for him quick. I loved the Manford post.

So basicslly people think the choice is between letting them get a tantrum out of their system or smacking their child? (Not people on here obviously). I've let my children get it out of their system too rather than smackign them. U had a meltdown a couple of weeks ago and like others waited for her to calm down and then we had a cuddle.

I left M on Tesco floor on Monday as apparently "she no like Tescooooooooooo!!!" (Accompanied by flailing around obviously). I let her play in the park, I'm sure the council don't clean the play equipment before she goes on the slide or swings etc. Some people overreact. I "liked" Jasons pic as I could soooo relate to it!

God O's favourite thing to do at the minute is lay down on any shop floor whether she's having a tantrum or not. If she's having a tantrum, she's left to it here. She soon stops when nobody's watching.

If I had a pound for every time I've had to deal with this! I either leave or pick up and carry out if I'm in a hurry. Leaving them to cry on the floor is looked upon in horror here which makes all this so much harder. I'm glad I'm not the only one who leaves them to get on with it.

If they decide to tantrum on the floor, they can stay there until they decide to behave. Better than smacking or other end of spectrum giving in to their whims.

I'd join C on the floor and make the same noises and flail my arms and legs around too....just to really confuse her (Im such a bad mummy)
