End 68 Hours of Hunger is a private, not-for-profit, effort to confront the approximately 68 hours of hunger that some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. Please consider picking up extra food items when you do your grocery shopping to donate to this cause. For more information and a list of foods they are looking for, visit end68hoursofhunger.org/donate/.

My three year old, whose usually pretty easily redirected when he is upset, saves his absolutely worse tantrums for the supermarket. While I try to involve him in the shopping, it seems we can’t last 5 minutes before he falls apart and starts screaming. The last two times this happened I took him out of the store and brought him home. His tantrums lasted the full fifteen minutes it took to get home. I then went back to the store alone to complete my shopping. I’m embarrassed and frustrated that something as routine as grocery shopping can be such a nightmare. How can I turn this situation around?
