    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.
    You weren't ignoring him at all DA, you sat there and waited for him to finish..BIG difference.
    Well done dear

    But now I'm having to move on to teenage years, and I'm back at the 'drawing board ' again.

    Long drawn-out sigh...

    Yes, in all seriousness I'll be very careful. I have come face to face with youth suicide in the past, and feel that teenagers these days have a huge load they feel they must carry. We adults must help them carry that load, not burder them with more baggage IMO.

    I personally would hate to be a teenager in this day and age. Just my opinion from what i see.

    Sorry, off topic...again.

    IMO it was necessary. I have been temped so many times to punch non SBT people in the face when ever they make such stupid comments about the way i loving treat my dogs & that includes my relos...

    I would lay my life on the line for my beloved breed, that's how much passion i have for my beloved breed.

    I've only got two years left! Don't know how I'll survive adulthood...I'm not very 'adulty.' Am very nervous about Year 12 though.

    And Floyd, I didn't see Masha's comment aimed at you anywhere within her post

    AGF, straight to the point, what is your problem lately? You never used to behave and post in such a blatently aggresive manner all the time. You were a lovely member to converse with with great things to say IMO.
    But, I can hardly read a post of yours lately that's not full of intense anger and hatred aimed at someone or other.

    Can you sort it out, cause it's really starting to affect ppl here.

    LOL! Good on you DA!

    My aunty took my little cousin to the supermarket once when he was about 3 (this is in about 1994). He chucked a massive tantrum so she smacked him. Some lady came up to her and had a go at her about smacking my cousin. My aunty picked my cousin up, handed him to the other lady and said "Fine! YOU take him then" and walked off.

    On the kids going grocery shopping with their parents thing... I don't mind, as I used to go with my mum. But we had to behave ourselves. I can't stand it when the parents just let the kids take off and run wild around the supermarket.
