I am so sick of seeing kids run around the store with either no parent in sight or the parent ignoring what their kid is doing. People you need to control your damn hellions or leave them with a sitter. I hate passive parents.

I have three kids that are always under control. They know that if they act a fool they will get their asses busted. We get compliments all the time on how good our kids are.

I do. I taught them how to behave in public. I never allowed them to run and yell in stores and restaraunts. If your gonna pass assumptions on me then Ill assume your one of those parents with a wild kid that doesn't discipline and you try to be your kids friend instead of a parent.

If we were tipping things over and hiding in the clothes Mom would take a key and rip it across our scalps from behind. Dear God that hurts.
She would repeat the punishment over and over again untill we left the store. Sometimes blood appeared on our heads. She was MEAN!!!
At first I was gonna say that is a good technique, distract kids but then I read on. That's abuse.

sorry that suppose to have said kids with autism..
yes I do discipline my children
yes he does act out in public
that's only because he has ADHD and autism and he cant help it.
And its very hard for him to understand when we do discipline him
So before you assume its the parent just think... maybe the childern who you are talking about might in fact have autism. I have another child who is 8 and she is very good in public thank you very much.
And yes every child is different.

Ive tried the right way and my child hated being told no, so she got in the court system and they let her do whatever she wanted. until the courts get control over kids and let them know the parents are in charge then its just going to get worse. I truly pray for these kids.

And here it goes. That's everyone's excuse. I find it hard to believe that out of let's say ten kids, three are gonna be autistic or ADHD. Seems like everyone's kid is autistic or ADHD or some sort of disorder. I think it's over diagnosed. I think most unruly kids are that way from lazy parenting not a disorder. Your kid may have this disorder but too many use this as an excuse. My friend has a severely autistic son and he is well behaved. I think parents try to pawn a disorder on their kids so they can have an excuse for their crappy parenting. Again I am aware you say your child is autistic but not every child is. It's bad parenting.

I have Ashford, and have a child who is also autistic. It is all about finding a way to keep your child calm while in said store. I knew not to act up because my parents taught me better and my youngest child doesn't act out because we take things to keep him happy/occupied.

I was working and this kid was playing in the toilet paper getting all up in the bin. I told him to stop and his mom went off on me told me not to discipline her kid. Well for one I wasn't disciplinig him I told him to stop. I have to protect my job and the company against accidents. If that kid had gotten hurt she probably tried to sue. I agre parents do not control their kids. She was letting him run wild. Nobody wants to deal with your unruly kids people! And don't get mad when people think your kids are brats.

I don't think it's judgemental at all!! My child got her butt busted in the middle of wherever we were if she threw tantrums. It only happened once or twice and she learned. I even had someone threaten to call CPS on me for it once. I gave them my name address and phone number and told them go ahead. She wasnt allowed away from me in stores until she was a teenager and even then she behaved!! The problem with kids today is we are NOT allowed to discipline our children without getting turned in to the authorities. If a store employee had to tell my child to quit doing something I wouldn't be angry about it at all. I will still get on to my child even though she is grown. I hate it when I am out to dinner and the child is screaming for no reason or throwing a fit and the parents are just sitting there ignoring them BUST their butts once in a while.

Hitting kids is wrong! I put my two in time outs but when your out you can't conveniently put them in a corner until you get home. I'd never hit one of my kids! They do kid things. It's better to not give them the attention they want from acting up. If you ignore their tantrums they learn that you won't give in. Let kids be kids because the world is forcing then to grow up to quick. I can't stand people who think kids should act like miniature adults.

I never said act like a miniature adult nor did I say beat your children. Spanking a child is ok. My child got time out too if needed but on rare occasions that wasnt enough so she got spanked. You make it sound like we said to go around hitting children just for fun. NO what we ARE saying is spanking is ok when/if needed. My child rarely got spankings because in most cases it was unnecessary however there was a time or two it was needed. You say to "ignore" the behavior is what should be done. When your child realizes that particular attention seeking tantrum wont work they will do something more extreme and so on. Ignoring issues and situations is why our society is how it is. When our grandparents and parents were younger I guarantee you they were spanked. "Doing kid things" is one thing but being disrespectful and disruptive is another. Time out only works so long. When your children are teenagers are you going to put them in a corner lol? When little sam/katie comes home drunk are you going to put them in a corner? And FYI my child is a well rounded adult who respects herself and others, spoiled rotten, and loves her parents dearly, and has said thank you to us for guiding her instead of doing it all for her because unlike her teenage friends she isnt pregnant!!

I, too, put my child in time out but that doesn't always work and sometimes spanking is the only way to make her mind. When we are out in public you better believe I will find a corner or make her stand with her nose on the wall for a time out. I understand that sometimes children cry and act up but when you sit there and watch and do NOTHING about it. That's just flat out ignorance on the parent's part. It's not hard to tell your child to behave or find out what is upsetting them.

You are right!! I have a nephew that is horrible, stays in legal trouble and is only 14. The law doesn't let parents discipline anymore and when they end up in court the judges just slap them on the hand. Only going to get worse!!
