They seriously lack discipline
Some children are quiet while others are incredibly unruly. While every kid has their own personality, they’ve got to learn how to get along in society. That means being respectful, not shouting, and not touching others in inappropriate ways. For whatever reason there are parents out there just don’t feel like their children need to be beholden to any rules. They think their kids should be allowed to do whatever they want. The results are usually awful.
Was at a restaurant, and the mother was just letting her kids draw on the wall and also lick… everything. Like full-on LICKING walls and tables. Kept talking to her friends or family and totally ignored this kids licking and drawing on everything.
Eventually the staff asked her to make the kids stop which she, albeit with some attitude, did end up stopping. (sammykleege)
I work at a cabinet and counter-top shop with my dad. I handle the customers that come into our showroom to look around and set an appointment.
I had a couple come in with their three very small children; the oldest looked around 10 or 11 while the youngest was probably six. As soon as they walk through the door, they sprint all the way to the back of the showroom where my desk was. I didn’t think anything of it because I like kids and thought they were cute. But when I left my desk to go talk to their parents, they GET ON MY COMPUTER where I had multiple drawings up that I had been working on that day. Their parents then ask me if its okay if they play on the computer, and I was literally lost for words. I thought it was a joke, but when I realized they were serious I told them no it was not okay. I told the kids they need to get off my computer. That’s just the first part.
They tried to go into our warehouse which is very dangerous for small children, and I again tell them to stay in the showroom. They come back in the showroom and just run around everywhere and wrestling on the floor. The entire time the parents don’t say anything to them. At this point I was just trying to get them out of my showroom. It was the worst 45 minutes of my life. (Xscooby0dookuX)
I used to work at a theme park. Was walking to the break room and I have no idea what this kid, who was probably about 10 years old, was upset about, but he was going off at his mother. Just screaming and calling her all sorts of words that I certainly didn’t know at that age, and things you should never call anyone, let alone your mother.
If I were his mom, we’d be packing it up on our way home, but she was just taking it, didn’t say a word back to him. Wasn’t sure whether I should feel sorry for her or the kid. (KOd06)
