“Oh my gosh! I can’t believe she is letting him get away with this.”
These are my thoughts as I am viewing a 3–4 year old in the checkout line of my local drug store pleading and begging with his Mom to buy him a particular Candy Bar because it appears he will DIE if he doesn’t get it.
And the more she tries to ignore his demands, the more out-of-control this child becomes by laying on the floor and crying uncontrollably.
You can just feel the embarrassment the Mom is experiencing by seeing her flushed red face and absolute helplessness as this child will not listen.
I am sure that most of you have witnessed a child acting out somewhere in your travels if not in your own home.
And here’s the thing, we can’t help but judge these experiences as being wrong.
