"Mommy, I want that" "Mommy, PLEEASEE give me that" with tears and he gets more pissed off when I say for the 100th time "No, DS."
Yes, we go through this as well. We have soooo many junk toys in the house, I finally had to put a moratorium on toy buying. Normally I wouldn't mind buying something small, but it just gets worse and worse every time we go.
One thing that does work is that when I know we are going to the store, I'll mention to DS that we're going to the store, but we will NOT be buying a toy. If I set it up before hand, it makes it easier for him to accept when we get to the store.
Today at the store he voluntarily rode in the cart! It's so much easier that way.
