Some people don't deserve to have children! If you aren't going to teach your kids manners and respect then you should just get yourself fixed!
I'm talkin about the people who let their kids run around screaming and yelling in public while they just gossip with their friends. It's disrespectful to other people and makes you look like an asshole for not watchin your kids! I can't count how many times I have been in a restaurant trying to enjoy a meal with my family while having other kids, older kids, not toddlers running around the restaurant yelling and screaming and bothering other patrons. Where are the parents you might ask? They are just sitting there letting it go on while they talk about the weather or whatever stupid topic of the day it may be.
Now, before you get mad, I'm not talking about babies and toddlers who are throwing temper tantrums because as any parent knows you can't control that. If a baby or child is upset you can't force them to stop crying. You can't tape their mouth shut no matter how much you might want to, lol! The respectful thing to do is to take the child out of the situation until they calm down as to not bother the other people around you. But anyway, that's not my topic of discussion right now. I'm talkin about the parents that just let their kids do whatever they want without any regard to other people. What are you teaching those kids? Nothing. The only thing you may be teaching them is that it's ok to run around squealing and acting like an animal!
A funny thing is, I'm sure people judge my husband and I by our looks. My husband is covered in tattoos and I have multiple piercings and tattoos. When we are out with our children I sometimes notice other people staring at us. I'm sure they are stereotyping us because of the way we look and I can only imagine the things they are saying about us being parents. However, not to toot my own horn but my kids are very well behaved in public. Ofcourse, they are just toddlers right now and do have their little meltdowns here and there but when we are in public they are usually quiet and well behaved. We have even had people come up to us and compliment us on how well behaved our children are. We don't beat the crap out of them, we just teach them that they can't act like animals when out in public (I'm not saying they don't act like that at home, lol)...and we will continue to teach them to have manners and respect for others throughout the years! Even though I may look a little bit different than you I am respectful, kind and caring towards others unless you cross that fine line!
