Shopping Success

Some parents hate to take their children to the grocery store, or, to any store! Meltdowns and embarrassing temper tantrums become the norm when children are bored or want to buy something that is not on the list. If shopping is difficult with your child, take time to develop a list which will engage him and help him to feel he is a needed member of your shopping crew. Build a child-friendly shopping board where pictures of foods to be purchased can be placed on and removed from the board when they are located and placed into the cart. Develop your grocery list with photos of items from your weekly flyer. The time you take now to build this shopping board with your child will be time well spent. Watch my video to learn how to develop your own shopping board.
