I have seen this happening so many times and I'm at a loss on how to handle it anymore. A mom walking through a store, pushing a toddler in the cart who is screaming nonstop. The mom just pushes through her shopping trip, ignoring the screaming and continuing with her shopping. I've tried just about everything - offered to help, suggested she carry the child, advised her to let him or her walk instead of sitting trapped in the cart. Mom either ignores me or gives me a look and walks off or tells me it's not my damend business or she insults her child in some way for the behavior.
I can't help but feel for the child and the mom but the attitude and response is always the same. Is it not my business? Or am I not offering the right help or words? What do you do when you see such a situation?
