I don't know about you, but I got into a lot of trouble at the grocery store growing up. From jumping on the checkered tiles to not fall in the lava, to touching all the pretty things in the store. I remember always being in trouble at the grocery store.
As a mom now, I understand why my mom did the grocery shopping when we were at school! Shopping with my kids at the store can sometimes be a real treat too. However I've found the more praises I give when I'm shopping with them, the better our experience. Now, it's pretty enjoyable.
Here's some ideas for the next time you take your children on a grocery shopping adventure!
