That’s what I said as I stood up from my seat on an airplane recently. The three-or-so-year-old little boy sitting behind me decided to be an annoying little troublemaker on my flight from Grand Rapids to Chicago. I wish I could tell you I was patient—I wasn’t. Frustrated, actually. Dad was calmly saying, “Now stop that. Don’t kick the seat. The man isn’t liking you right now.” Then Dad offers him a bagel. “I TOLD YOU I DON’T LIKE BAGELS,” he said. What do you do when a strong-willed child “goes off”? Sometimes there’s not much you can do, but, when one of my kids threw a fit in a public place, the first thing I said was, “Sorry”—then took them to the bathroom. Sometimes stern conversation or other disciplinary action was required. Whatever you do, do it in private and do it in love.
