This is probebly the most dreded topic for parents. Going out and running errands with the kids. It probebly gets a little easier as the kids grow older, but what about shopping with three or four toddlers? Sounds like chaos right?
I certainly won't disagree with most parents, that taking the kids out in public is certainly challenging at times. Especially when they are cranky!!! But going out as a family is to important to the recreational, emotional and general health of family life to be avoided all together...Don't believe all the horror stories you hear ;)
HOwever, the initial training at home is soooo very important and certain areas must never be ignored and taken for granted. These are:-
1) Your confidence in yourself as a parent
2) Dealing with Tantrums
3) Patience - both yourself and your kids.
I will ellaborate on each point shortly. Keep checking back! In the meanwhile, I've attached links to each point, so be sure to check them out for tips Inshaa Allah...
