The other half of the parents who just don’t give an eff anymore scenario as they drag their wailing toddlers away from grassy parks is the toddler reasoning. If you listen between those crying, garbled mumbles, you’ll usually hear a word or two about why this massive tantrum is happening on the sidewalk in the middle of a hot day. The line of thought often times doesn’t make sense, but some toddler translation does reveal how these temper tantrums could have been avoided in the first place.
