    Very funny, but unfortunately very true!

    Many parents today don't seem to feel like they need to control their children when in public. I was eating at a restaurant last year, and had a really bad headache at the time, which was about to get worse. At the table next to us was a group of 5 people, 2 of them children. The children were crawling all over the place, putting their feet on the seat of the booth, crawling under the table, etc.

    Finally, one of them got upset about something and started screaming and crying. This went on for more than just a few minutes, and the parents made no attempt to remove the screaming child. Everyone in the restaurant was looking at them.

    This continued on and off for another 20-30 minutes, and when I was ready to leave, the kid started in again. I gave the mother a dirty look as I stood up to leave, and she made a nasty comment TO ME!

    I couldn't believe her nerve! I was minding my own business, not disturbing anyone, trying to eat a meal that I was paying good money for, and she thought I was out of line for casting a disapproving look her way while her kid was disrupting the whole restaurant!

    I said something to her about "see what happens when you inbreed" or something to that effect, and left. When I was a kid, I would have never thought of doing such a thing, and I would have been removed immediately if I did.

    I haven't been back to that restaurant, and I did complain to the manager on the way out but he apparently didn't feel like it was in his power to do anything.

    The brat in the video should have been removed from the store, and punished for his behavior, but instead the parent just let it continue, disrupting the entire store. I know they were trying to make a point, and it was made, but parents shouldn't let their kids act like that in public.

    ROTFLMAO!!! Geez I need some air!!!

    Andy, agree totally. Have similar stories and yes I'd have been removed as well. What makes these types believe they have the right to let their children run amok like that?

    Anyway, is that Boris Becker?

    I think this would have made a good commercial for online shopping!
    I'd have been slapped along side the butt real fast had I acted like that.

    I think too many parents are afraid to discipline their kids, lest they get turned in for child abuse.

    My children on are on their best behavior when in public. I've seen the spoiled rotton child fit of rage thing to many times to allow my children to act up in public and get away with it. All four of them may have tried it once in their liftimes so far but none would dare do it again. I have no problem with making a scene when my children think I won't.

    My sister was divorced from a pathetic marriage and has spoiled rotton brats. I'm just waiting to take them shopping so they can tell mom that uncle Mike beat our rears to a pulp in Walmart.

    My three year old daughter WAS getting like that sometimes , but only in grocery stores for some reason , and I found the solution !

    If she wants a box of donuts, Rapunzel fruit snacks, or whatever the heck it may be , I just let her hold it , no argument , no constant "NO you can't have that" scenes, and no public tantrums .

    She holds whatever it may be proudly in her seat, examining the goods until she spots another thing she wants , and I give her a tough choice to make .

    What she has in your hand, or that other new thing she spotted . Sometimes she goes for the trade, sometimes she won't budge .

    Merrily we roll along, shopping happily, trading kiddie things back and forth to keep her amused. If she is still hanging on to something and doesn't want to part with it by checkout, I just let her have it, she earned it , and had to make a lot of tough choices to get it .

    Poor thing ... I've totally destroyed her thinking that she can get MORE THAN one item .

    When I offer her other things, she starts crying and REFUSES, pushing the item away , thinking it will have to be a trade off . Now, I'm having a tough time convincing her that she can have more than one goody

    My kids have never had a fit with me in a store, I don't take them! LOL

    Actually we always had the rule that if you behave you will get to pick out something, you act up you will get nothing. Always worked.

    Moneychaser... you crazy crazy crazy man. I can't help you there. I'm hoping to start from scratch. Maybe you can take some inspiration from "The Meaning of Life"? Does the line, "I've given this long and careful thought, and it has to be medical experiments for the lot of you." help you with a solution to your problem?

    gotapex... uh no, Mrs. Romijn-Stamos's hips are plenty wide it's the "Mrs." part that poses a problem. There might be a few other problems there, like maybe a deluded sense of reality on my part... maybe.

    Vrindavan... sorry about that. Ouch!

    I love my kids! RE: posts about discipline ... you are correct. We give our children specific guidelines and let them know what our expectations are. So far, the result has been exceptional behavior. Like anything else, you get out of it exactly what you put into it.
