Not a few moms are reluctant to take their babies to the supermarket when they imagine the excitement that might occur. The child pulls things off the shelf, runs in the hallway or plays the stroller without caution. Not to mention if the child is not ‘mood’, bored and whining for toys (which is not in the shopping list).
Unfortunately, Ma, even though taking children to the supermarket also has many benefits for him. Various products become an exciting sight for them.
To avoid excitement when shopping, you can try the following ways:
– Come to the subscription supermarket.
Mama has memorized the route that must be taken to get all the items in the shopping list. If you don’t plan to buy toys, you can avoid the area. Look for a path that suits the needs of mama’s shopping list, so that children are not lured to actively search for toy racks

Mama can also prepare a typical children’s shopping list in the form of lists with pictures, milk boxes, bananas, apples, bread and so on. He will help you remember that nothing is forgotten. This way you can shop while teaching children to practice counting.
