I find it tiring to bring my 17 month old toddler out. She does not like to hold my hand or sit in a stroller. I always had to keep an eye on her, and I did not manage to shop for anything. How do you mummies manage your toddler when you are bringing him/her out?

At shopping mall I will insist on holding hands else off to home we go. Set a couple of rules with your child and abide by it. After awhile, your child will automatically hold hands with you. If I had to pay money or hands held up or eyes held up, I would instruct her to hold on to my shirt or place her hand into my pocket or hold on to my pants.
