Emily is two. Enough said, right? Here is my dilemma - when we're out doing errands and something happens where she doesn't get her way, she digs in her heels or sits down or runs off. I'm fairly helpless in these situations, I feel. I'm nearly always carrying Rachel and simply cannot carry them both for any length. How should I handle this?
If I pretend not to mind, she not only learns a bad lesson, her behavior also does not change. If I am firm with her - nothing happens except more of the same behavior. Sometimes, I honestly don't know how I'll make it back to the car with both girls. Just curious how others of you have/are handling this situation and how I can learn!
