But maybe, next time, instead of saying “because I said so”, you can say one of these:“I don't have time to explain right now, please trust me”“I need your help and would like you to do this, for me”“We can talk about it later, I just don't think I can explain adequately right now”
Trying to stop a child crying by telling them to “stop crying” is like being told to “calm down” when you are upset. It actually creates the opposite response. Children crying in public triggers this response from parents even more. I hear parents issue warning after warning for the crying or the tantrum to stop.
