Does your child throw a fit whenever its time to leave the park or any place where they are having fun? Try the countdown solution. The idea is to give them some time to get used to the “idea” of leaving. Let them know they have 15 minutes before its time to leave. A few minutes later, let them know they have 10 minutes, and so on, and so on. Hopefully, by the time you actually leave, they will have had some time to “wrap up” their play and life will be easier for all involved.
