Shopping with Adeline these days is a nightmare.
She is like the Tazmanian Devil everywhere I take her. She wants to run from rack to rack, destroying everything in her path.
I’ll try to convince her to ride in the cart, and sometimes it works (usually at the start of the trip) but it never lasts.
I don’t know what is worse – the meltdown from the cart because she wants to get out or the destruction from her trying to pull down piles of clothes wherever she can find them.
Elias was not like this at all. I try to avoid doing errands with her because she has gotten to be such a mess in the stores, but sometimes this isn’t feasible.
So, I’m curious. Have you/do you have a child who is a bit wild in stores? What are your tactics?
