Taking Kids Holiday Shopping?

Just saw about 5 meltdowns at the 5 Below store today...ugh!  Here's an idea to avoid those crazy moments....before heading to the store with your little ones this holiday season, remember to use treats/praise for positive behavior instead of bribes to calm them down.  Be realistic (3 hours of shopping is a lot for a toddler for example!) Let them know your expectations and be calm and consistent. If at all possible, leave them at home! It's a jungle out there!
