guilt and good parenting go hand in hand

Yvette thank you for this post. It made me think of my own shopping experiences both good and bad with my own precious girls (4yo and 3yo).

Sadly I could relate to both sides of the article, that is, I have lost my temper with my children (whilst shopping) when after a very tiring day they had been running around the supermarket (like headless chickens).
I think we are all human and all have days of low tolerance but it is how we deal with it.
Now I make sure (when possible) that I shop without my children in Supermarkets or places they would be bored.
However, in saying this with careful planning or creative thinking it can be made into an enjoyable experience (like that of the down-to-earth dad).
If you involve the kids in the shopping,give them items to find it can be fun.

I think it is so important how we engage with our children and that our loving interactions far outweigh the times where there might be friction.
My husband and I make sure our children know how much they are loved each day
