Message:  What are you supposed to do on Shabbat if your four year old child demands to be carried? He is not sick or anything, just acting like a four year old.
Reply:  Don't bring him along. If you are already stuck out with him, wait him out. However, if you are in middle of the street or don't want to hang out all afternoon, carry him less than four amot and put him down. Then someone else (if available or else you) should pick him up and carry less than four amos and then put him down. The four amot is approx. 7feet 9inches.
This is ONLY for a child who can walk.
