Technology and Tantrums

The other day, I took my son to a very populated place (Disney World during Spring Break…what exactly was I thinking) and let him run wild in one of the play areas to release some energy. When it was time to leave, he had a massive meltdown. It was so bad, I have been checking YouTube obsessively to make sure no one caught it on video.

This sparked a thought, isn’t it amazing how technology has changed our lives? Now, you never know when someone is using their smart phone or flip camera to capture your moments (even not so great ones when you’d prefer to crawl under a rock to hide). Then, they are sharing it with the entire world with one simple click!

I have one word for people who do that…karma! You think it’s funny, but something like that WILL happen to you! Toddlers are unpredictable and public humiliation is mortifying. Someday, it will be your child throwing a tantrum while others point and stare, just wait!

    I just have to laugh out loud!! Austin had a melt down at the flea market the other day and I simply strapped him in his stroller and continued walking completely ignoring his screaming…..the looks I received were hilarious, I was like seriously people, you would have thought they have never seen a two year old melt down. I ignored him the entire time. I was not about to end the trip because he didnt get his way. and it worked, he stopped within 5 minutes and the rest of our outing was event free!

  2. I just cannot see that precious little Austin melting down, he was so mellow last week. 🙂 Glad the rest of your trip was event free! Yes, the looks from others is wonderful, I wanted to start doing the parade wave to everyone as I pushed the screaming 2 year old out of Hollywood Studios. 🙂

  3. […] is proof that my little guy did have some fun before his monster melt down last week at Hollywood […]
