Does your child suffer from the "I wants"

The family went to Ikea this weekend because we needed a few things (My husband wanted Swedish meatballs in the cafeteria)

"Let's have a nice family outing" he says

"We can grab a few things in the marketplace for the kitchen" he says

Insert 10 year old boy who wants nothing to do with this whole trip and is going to let us know the minute we get in the car to the minute we get home that he doesn't.

Don't get me wrong this boy is kind and sweet and usually happy to check out a place where he can get a few things- but on this occasion that was not happening.

What do you do when your child wants and asks for EVERYTHING?

I hate to be a repeat track of "NO" but on this occasion it was actually physically painful!

This is what the professionals say

How do you handle a case of the "I wants?"
