As per parenthacks.com:
“There is nothing more dangerous than a 5 year old in a parking lot while you are trying to put the groceries away. I started playing a little game of “Assume the position” with my son to keep him by the car and out of trouble.

Josh would place both hands on the side of the car, feet back and spread’em! He once again would not move until I said the magic word… “release”. I would get some pretty interesting looks from passers by. “

We load up our daughter first then we unload our grocery. It is very hard to control them but a magic game might work.
