Wow, sure wish we had a grocery store like that!
Great ideas..I will start enforcing the hold onto the cart rule and see how that goes.

Wow that would be sooo scary !!!

My " ex " supermarket decided to order in a collection of kids cars ( the ones that the kids can sit in to and ride along in ) Can you imagine trying to push a cart and having your small kids going along in a child size car .....i have seen so many older people nearly fall down after some kid has " driven " in to the back of their cart .

We dont go there anymore as i dont want to be " mean mammy " every time we go grocery shopping as i wont let my girls ride in the cars .

My girls are very good when we go shopping and i give Julia her own little list of things we need so she feel's part of the " chore " . Emmy stays in the cart and eats her " nana " ( banana ) so she is a happy passanger

I know that this is a very old thread, but I have just come across it while browsing. Reading it took me straight back to the time when our son was a little boy (and that's a very long time ago!). Sometimes, when we were in a large store, he would run off when we were looking the other way, and hide himself. If it was a clothing store such as Marks and Spencer (which is a very popular store over here), he would dive into the middle of a clothing carousel and stand stock still until we found him. We could locate him only by getting down on our hands and knees and peering at ground level, looking for the tell-tale pair of feet! In furniture stores, he would usually hide inside a wardrobe and close the doors. We would then have to check every wardrobe in the shop, until we found him.

I think he has just about grown out of this behaviour now - but then he is 33!
