Toddler Tricks – 92: When Everything Changes, Stay the Same

Problem: You’re going to visit family, or friends, or someone far away where it’s not quite a vacation, but not quite not. You need your children to behave, but with all the changes to routine, new faces, and new pecking order, they don’t know what to think. When no one steps up to be the sole leader, you’ll find your children deciding that they are in charge. This is disaster. So much for showing off good behavior for grandma and grandpa. You’ll say something, and at first, they’ll go to the next adult to see if they like that answer better. After a while, they’ll skip that step and go right to the screaming. Even if they never get what they want from tantrums, it seems that doesn’t deter them.
