What To Do If Your Kid Has A Tantrum In Public
1y+
Discipline

It is especially difficult to deal with your child if they are having a meltdown at a public place. Everybody turns to stare at you and your screaming child, and you feel incompetent, guilty and embarrassed all at once. Even though it is extremely difficult, the most important thing at that point is to stay absolutely calm. Make eye contact with your child and in a firm yet calm voice, tell them to stop screaming. If they do not listen, pick them up and leave the place.
