Is anyone else tired of idiot parents who make no attempt to control their children in public? I was in Taco Bell today and there were 2 women, about 20 years of age each, with 5 very young children between them.(One of these women was obviously expecting.) The stood and conversed in blessed oblivion while their wild heathen children swung on the railings, spun on chairs and bounced off people minding their own business like pinballs in a pinball machine. Do not misunderstand, I do not expect Taco Bell to be silent like the stacks of a library. I do, however, expect parents to control their children in public and keep them from annoying innocent bystanders.
These same paragons of parenting were leaving about the same time I pulled out of my parking space. Two of their juvenile charges nearly ran out be hind me as I backed out because the "adults" were oblivious to their actions. One so called "adult" walked across the parking lot leaving the children, one of whom was merely a toddler, to follow behind like baby ducks. She never once looked back. If you can not control your children, keep them at home. If you are not responsible enough to care for a child , do not have one.

I hear ya and when they grow up they have not learned a thing either yesterday i was in walmart parking lot and watched this 20 something year old texting as she walked behind the cars in the parking lot this older man and woman were backing out of thier parking spot and she walked straight at them not paying any attention to where she was going and SOMEHOW she figured it was their fault because she started yelling cuss words at them and calling them stupid and things. I have spent 40 plus years looking over stupid people like this but it has got to the point I am just about feed up with peoples lack of respect and total lack of morals and the ME ME ME syndrome that I see so much of these days that I almost and I do mean real close to yelling at her something similar to what she was yelling at those people example: well you dumb B$#@ if you had been paying attention to what you were doing instead of just expecting everyone to bow down to your fat ass then maybe your dumb ass would not look quite as stupid as you do yelling out these vulgar ass words that you just said to those people. I really just wanted her to feel as stupid as she looked. I did not do this do this but I really wanted to but I guess my high moral standards would not allow me to speak to another person in such a manner to bad she was not taught such high standards by her parents. Thanks MOM AND DAD you did a great job
oh really

Well it couldn't have been me...I would have asked them to get their children under control if they were going to have them out in public. Might have upset someone but I can't help that...seeing how their children already would have had me upset. How could they even get mad? I mean there is something called manners and I sure would have taught them some really quick.

Wanting people to control their brats in public is not being. what was it you said? A judgemental twit? You must be one of those lazy mothers that let others control your kids while you try and look cute..sorry but being a bad mother makes you look trashy and selfish...work on that ok..then come back here and call people names for wanting to enjoy their time out shopping or eating in a peaseful enviroment.

My favorites are the ones that are in a restaurant and threaten their kids over and over and over and then DO NOTHING! I really want to go over to the table and say "Excuse me, but if you don't want to take your kids to restroom and straighten them out. I will be more than happy to take them".:)

grown adults have a mis conception of children in general. Children are supposed to play they can be taught to be quiet when the time is right Children are not supposed to be quiet all the time. They are supposed to act like children not like grown ups. If it bothers you to be around children go eat where adults are the only ones alowed.

amen. these people obviously don't have children or they would understand better. i don't agree with letting them act completely out of hand and bothering other patrons, but if they are not personally bothering other patrons, leave them alone and let them be kids. if it's the noise that's bothering you and they aren't personally coming up to you, get the stick out of your butt and remember that they are only kids.

anon your right kids should play but to be out of control at a public place is big no no. Parents should contor their kids better. Maybe its how I was raise not to act like little brat.

right i do agree with what you're saying. they shouldn't be completely free to do whatever they want. i worked in a fast food restaurant and there was one woman who would come in with her daughter, who was probably about 4, maybe. this woman would sit and let her daughter run all over the restaurant and she would tell her to sit down but wouldn't go after her! sometimes the child would even go sit beside people at their tables! one man complained about it and the mom got mad at him! now that was out of line, because the little girl was actually going to another customer and bothering them at their table.

There's a time and place for everything...at home and on the playground yes kids should be able to be kids. But in public they should be taught to act right. Its not fair to other paying customers to have to put up with screaming kids who are running around, running into people and just downright rude. I was taught to behave in public and I knew better. I knew if I didn't I would be in a lot of trouble. And yes before anyone comments I have 2 small children.

I raised four kids, and if they acted up while we were out in public, they immediately were taken to the car. And they sat in their seats while out dining, or else! Other people don't want to have to deal with bratty kids. If parents can't control their little darlings, then keep them home!
