    Sometimes food needs to be bought though.. I have had to take my kids on my own kicking and screaming (The kids were kicking and screaming too, but more me) because we had nothing for dinner and no loo paper.

    EDIT: I realized this may be offensive to people so I'll just say yes Pug, I do see were you are coming from.

    Yeah that was my reaction but I edited in case it offends someone. I am not a parent, I guess I would've just thought..Being a parent was an bonding experience?

    I prefer to do the grocery shopping alone or with one son, not both together. Then they are a nightmare, not worth the hassle.

    Neither of my kids enjoy grocery shopping, there are far better things they'd like to be doing at that time - but then, there are far better things I'd like to be doing as well. And as they eat the food too, they can help get it. Simple.

    True. Lol.
    My eldest had a real hum-dinger tantrum once right in the middle of a shopping mall, at the entrance to Coles supermarket. he was 2 years old or so, and didn't want to go shopping. Tought titties for him, because I needed to go shopping!
    So down her goes onto the floor, kicking, punching, screaming, balling, snot running everywhere, even on the floor. It was disgusting!
    So many ppl passing by tutted and carried on and shook their heads at me, because I just sat there in silence on the benchseat and totally ignored him.
    I had told him, you can carry on till doomsday, son, but we ARE going shopping when you finish.

    I sat for almost a friggin hour in total mortification, but refused to give in.
    Nearly an hour later, he looks up, knows he won't beat me, wiped his nose on his sleeve, stood up, grabbed my hand and in total silence proceeded to go into the supermarket.
    Although this episode shook me greatly because of all the ppl who failed to understand my motives, the best part of it was when a little old pensioner lady came up, tapped me on the back and quietly said 'well done dear."

    My son has behaved impecably in a supermarket ever since.
