That's right, the claw game. Just stick Junior into the machine while you shop. He/she is completely contained and they have plenty of toys to play with to keep themself entertained. Safety isn't even an issue because, hey, we all know that no one ever wins at those games. Stupid claw won't hold on to anything long enough for you to win. Yes, your precious youngster will be safe and sound until you get back. Once you're done with your shopping, just call for one of the friendly store security personnel to come open up the machine to get your child out. They're always happy to help! Yes, it's a win-win all around. Now go and enjoy that pot pie!

Parenting 101 - Shopping the easy way
There is a chore that brings terror to the hearts of most parents: Shopping. Why? Because they have to bring along little Tommy or Sally, maybe even both, and that's just asking for trouble. There's the whining, the begging, the tantrums... And don't even get me started on the children's behavior. But shopping is a necessary evil because those frozen chicken pot pies and L'Eggs pantyhose are not going to just show up on your doorstep. So what's a parent to do? Well folks, you've come to the right place because I have your solution.
