How do you deal with those huge tantrums when they happen in public? The ones in the middle of the grocery store when everyone is looking at you?.

Just ignore them when someone is continuously gazing you or huge tantrums.

Oy. The public tantrum is the worst! I also try to do the distraction technique. It usually works but I have had to leave the store before when it didn't. I try to never go to the store around nap time and I always go armed with snacks!

I try to distract them with singing or silliness when I see the first signs of a tantrum coming on. When it actually hits I will take them outside the store if I have to to settle down. But they sure can be embarrassing...
