Named A-lister (Charlize Theron) is shamed for having her 4 year old actually act like a four year old in public? Did you hear the story?
Earlier this week on the homepage of several celebrity and news sites Charlize Theron got a virtual tongue lashing, for the way she handled her son’s temper tantrum. The pictures show it all.
There was hoisting, pulling and some say dragging involved. As a parent who has survived four year old tantrums in the past, let me just say that they are not for the faint at heart.
Just earlier this week, a similar situation ensued in another parking lot (many miles away) when a mom forgot to bring the homemade grain-free cookie to school for afternoon pick up. The toddler, who had been conditioned by school caregivers to expect a sugary treat after playschool each day… kicked, screamed and fought when his mom picked him up and he was denied his usual after school treat.
After realizing that the healthy cookie was mistakenly left at home, the determined mom did not give in and hence the scene began and continued all the way to the school parking lot.
Unfortunately or fortunately, no paparazzi were on sight to capture the mayhem. But those on the scene seem to agree that the pictures look eerily similar.
Parenting is full of ups and downs, twists and turns and curls and squiggles. But the moral of the story is, no matter how hard it gets, never ever forgot the cookie.
Captured in calmer moments…
