@th is that the parent with the -__- expression on their face?

@ranjit that's my assumption, and I think this guy is also involved.

@th @ranjit every parent eventually has that "oh, you gonna just lie on the sidewalk and whine? K, bye" moment and ngl it is immensely liberating

@phooky it is liberating for a short while until you realize you have to return and the kiddo confirms that tantrums are a workable way to achieve things


@lkundrak wait, you're supposed to come back?

[Our strategy was just to wait patiently about twenty feet away until they were done. Luckily the major tantrum phase was pretty short for both our kids.]
