explaining things to my 2 yr old before we step out has really worked for me... i do it every time we go out and now he is used to it... he kind of waits for my instructions the moment we get into the car...

Children more than age of 2 years can understand your speech. explaining them before we are going out really helps a lot. for example if you are taking your child to a mall, explain your kid how to behave, and it is not good ask for whatever they see. tell the kid that we need to buy only the needful things. always carry your child's favourite snack. don't ever beat or shout them. if your kid pulls everything, tell them strictly that it is not good. often take them out. they will get used to it. Whenever your has not misbehaved or when they listen to you, appreciate . I use to put a star in son's hand. Never get your child all the things they cry for, it will spoil their future. you have to select all their things don't allow them to decide till they are atleast 10. Buying them their choice of food , flavour of ice-cream are not the issues.
