My daughter is 18 months old.
And for an 18-month old, she has a good memory.
Just imagine, two months ago, we brought her to Kidzoona Robinsons Galleria.
Today, as we go to Galleria, she holds my hand and tugs me back to Kidzoona.
We have yet to have lunch so I say no. As a result, she is at the floor, crying her eyes out.
“No daughter, we will eat first. And then go to Megamall, and there, I promise you will play.”
Of course, baby girl doesn’t listen. In fact, she continues her tirade on the floor. I bring her in Pancake House where her favorite food, spaghetti, is on the table.
She does so while I eat, yaya eats and we finish our food.
Afterwards, when she is exhausted, she finally stops, and then quietly eats.
She doesn’t eat a lot, just a few strands of spaghetti, but she eats.
Oh well, I’m neither her father or her grandmother. So no means no.
Am I ashamed of her tantrum?
Not really. I know I will vindicated when other people watching us start having toddlers.
What’s more, it’s important that the child understands that they don’t always get what they want.
I think there should be less tantrums in the future.
Good luck to me!
