I’ll do whatever it takes to avoid a tantrum in the store. A loves to look “out.” She’s preferred to look out ever since she was a tiny infant. So if it means pushing the cart from behind so she can see where she is going to keep her happy (and sitting down), then so be it.
BONUS: NPR just aired a report about the predictability of tantrums, based on a scientific study published in the journal, Emotion. Read more about the study and what researchers found out, here.
