4. My child will not be the one having public tantrums.
Wouldn’t it be lovely if you could just tell your child to chill and they would? But that’s not the way it works. Kids have tantrums for the most ridiculous things. Once you become a parent, you recognize that kids have to work these things out sometimes. The question becomes not if they are going to have a public tantrum at some point but how long you’re going to let them freak out before you walk out of the store. Of course, if you’re in a restaurant, you should leave immediately (it’s just plain rude, otherwise). But if you’re on a plane, you’re just going to have to ride it out and manage it as best you can. Game over.
