Train them young

abbie-shop-1abbie-shop-2Supermarkets and children can be a nightmare.

I find it hard to lift the grandchildren into the shopping trolley now they are growing so I am trying to train them to be useful.

The first time you get them to help can be fun.

The second time I found that I was being handed things I did not want and had to be firm about making things go back on the shelves.

Now I find that I usually get the correct things.  I sometimes purposefully moves things to the lower shelf so that my little helper can pick it.  It is also good at helping teach colours and numbers as I often say things like “Give me two blue boxes”

When I am shopping on my own, I try to avoid the self checkouts, however with a little helper to pack the items into the bagging areas it can be quite quick.
