kidsizedcoffin: bighasbeen: kidsizedcoffin: bighasbeen: What's grosser than ten dead snowflakes in a trash can?

One dead snowflake in ten trashcans.

Reminds me of one of my favorites;

Half a puppy.

Ha ha ha!

Another one of my favorites:

What's 18 inches long and makes women scream all night ?

Crib death.


What's the difference between a Ferarri and a pile of dead babies?

I don't have a Ferarri in my garage.

I don't yell at my kids.
Verbally, that is.
All I need to do is use my eyes.
And I don't know about your kids or any other monsters but my 4 can remember back to the womb. For whom is the day salvaged? If one child is behaving in a socially unacceptable manner and I remove him from the environment for a brief 'time-out', what important lesson have the others learned for next time? If we all get up and leave the day is salvaged for all the other diners in the restaurant and the other children learn as well...if any of you fark up, you all suffer the consequences...learn from your brother's mistakes so you do not have to make your own.
I am never angry at my children.
I do not allow unacceptable behavior.
There is nothing that requires me to take misbehaving children in public and mine know it. If they are unable to control themselves they get to eat at home until they learn.

Here are a few pet peeves just for comparison. Bad cuts of steak. Piss all over the bathroom because each patron incrementally steps one pace back to avoid the piss all over the bathroom. The 350-pound guy who sits down in the next booth and turns the combined seat into a see saw. The waitress who wants 20% for taking the order, bringing it out, and refilling the drinks twice (but no more so as to clear the table).

Recently, elementary kids have been getting up from their tables and visiting other tables. It's some weird Children of the Corn stuff. It's not a soccer team lunch. It's people who know each other yet sat across the restaurant from one another. No big deal except the kids hold pow wows in the aisle and block me from going to the piss stained bathroom.

Crying toddlers don't bother me though.

To the farkers that think that badly behaving children must equate to bad parenting: go pull your farking head out of your ass.

A good friend of mine has a six-year-old who every once in a while acts up in public place like a super market or department store. He makes quite a scene by yelling and rolling on the floor. On numerous occasions, angered people just as ignorant as yourselves feel the need to actually walk up and tell her what an awful/unfit parent she is. Most just give her ugly looks. But sometimes they can go even further and inform her that she needs to be a real parent by beating some manners into him, smacking him around, etc. Maybe that'd work if he wasn't autistic! She can't restrain him either; otherwise he becomes incredibly violent and his condition temporarily worsens. I've met my share of these people who've had the gall to confront us and say something nasty to my friend. However, once they find out they were hating on an kid with autism, they became all too embarrassed and apologetic. So the moral of the story is to abandon your close-minded notion that any inconveniently disruptive child MUST be the sign of poor parenting or some other problem with today's society.

My parent's pulled this off at some obscure diner in louisiana in the 80s. We kept getting looks from the people inside the diner while eating so when we left, they screamed at and then stuffed my brother (six at the time) into the trunk of the car as we watched their jaws drop through the windows. They didn't think we would later open the armrest and my brother could safely climb through to the backseat. Thinking back, we wouldn't be able to get away with this nowadays.

/my parents ROCK!
//the family that has FUN together, sticks together
///hence we were always well-behaved



kidsizedcoffin: mccallcl: kidsizedcoffin: Did they at least crack the window for you in the summer?

Probably, I don't remember. I did manage to get the car into neutral once and hit a parked car, so that was it for that strategy. I was a good kid, I swear!

My mom had to raise twin boys with no dad around, I'm surprised she didn't just stuff us in the trunk.

Luckily my car has a keylock on the gearshift, however children's services gets a little uppity if you put your kids in the trunk without removing the sub first, especially if you don't turn off your stereo.

I have two kids - a 6 year old and a 3 year old. If my kids were being annoying in any fashion - making noises, kicking seats, etc... they get a warning. If they don't knock it off, I'll take them outside until they calm down. If they still don't knock it off, we leave. If they annoy someone, I make them apologize. If they run into or otherwise disturb others, they will provide an apology.


This.

I was at my parents church this past sunday. A little boy ran up to me and tells me "Marry me, if you dont I will CUT your throat so NO man will be with you!" His mom immediatly made him apologize and took him to the restroom.

You know, teaching your kids to be polite and respectful in public isn't a hard thing to do. Hell, I don't even *have* kids, but I've spent enough time in a supervisory role for small children that *I* know how to do it.

/Depending on the age: distract, remove-wait-explain, time-out-ignore.
//The last is my favorite. When the kid is old enough to know better and they scream for an hour in their room trying to make a point, and eventually come out and apologize because they realize they knew better the whole time.

Years ago when I worked at a bar a couple came in with their two kids and proceeded to take zero interest in what they were up to while they ate--this was around 8:00pm, post restaurant, pre bar time, so the place was pretty dead.

The kids were left to run wild, and rather than disturb the couple, I had a pair of my security guys just shadow the kids. Within minutes they were outside. By the time they'd finished eating, it'd been about an hour, and not once during that time had they wondered what their kids were up to.

They paid their bill and tipped the remaining coins, then proceeded out the door.

I called the police, who showed up in about 30 seconds (we were across the street from the HQ/jail). The police stopped the parents before they got into their car and asked them, "WHAT'D YOU DO WITH THOSE KIDS!?!?!?" and held them at gunpoint (not my intention) for a few minutes.

That part sorted, the police then walked the neighborhood with the parents and found their kids about three blocks away, alone and playing with chunks of asphalt in a parking lot in the midst of an area known for crack and heroin dealing.

The parents were furious for about 30 seconds until they were told their kids had been watched from a short distance the whole time and sans that they might've been gone forever. They became furious again when they were hauled off somewhere and their kids were hauled off somewhere else.

One of the cops told me the parents didn't seem to remember they'd even brought the kids with them. I never heard any more about it.

99% of the time, it's poor parenting. The autism issue is also, to a degree, poor parenting. Crowded places probably aren't the best places to take your child who has issues with hypersensitivity and throwing tantrums.

Back in Nebraska I worked in a day care center, we have one of the worst behaved children of all times. This two year old could not only use the F* word correctly he could put it in a sentence with other equally horrid words .. IE you F*ing B* go F* off and die. I had him in my room for a week before I told the director that I will either beat the child's ass or beat it to death if she does not remove IT from my room. Also swearing was the least of his problems he would hit, bit, and throw funiture just because he could sadly as a day care worker all I could do was "time out" and "think time."


//also gave one coworker a bloody nose and the director a black eye before he was removed from the center.

Of course. I mean at first when he said that I was shocked because I`ve never had anyone talk to me like that so I didnt even know how to respond. Before I could say or do anything his mother grabbed him, apologized and took him to the restroom.
Whats funny is, sometimes his mom will ask me to give him a hug which I find just completely hilarious.

I think [the spokesman's story] is probably the truth.

I believe her version. But that doesn't mean that I'm siding with her.

Do you think the manager said "If you can't control your child, then we'll have to ask you to dine at another establishment" or "Is there anything that you or I could to to calm and quiet your child"?

I don't think the woman is smart enough to come up with the phrase "dine at another establishment" or that the manager had the patience to ask if there was anything that he could do to help quiet the kid.

The usual way to deal with this kind of PR nightmare is to issue an apology, get rid of the manager and play nice like it was just this one dude who got all uppity about babies.

They don't break out the "man, she was a f*cking b*tch before she was thrown out" line unless they truly believe it.


Companies do shiat like that all the time. No one recorded the Manager/Mom conversation so we'll never know what the manager really said. Both can sides can claim that the other person is lying. Why not just avoid the controversy all together by claiming that she was thrown out for swearing at them?

slobarnuts:
No, i don't believe the restaurant kicked her out for nothing. Restaurants don't kick out potentially paying customers for no reason.

They did have a reason: the kid was making a lot of noise and disturbing people. They lost very little by turning her away.

<b>dezba</b>: <i>I'm glad you have terrible experiences your local "nice places" to eat. Somehow you were under the impression that poor people cannot control their kids while those with a bit more cash in their wallets raise more well behaved children.

Disillusionment is a biatch, isn't it?</i>

It's unfortunate if you were insulted, but it simply happens to be a fact that poor people have more out-of-control kids than people with decent incomes.

Many poor people are poor because they are uneducated or lazy. Those qualities in a person don't make them very good at parenting.

Money problems also often lead to broken families. Children in those situations tend to have more discipline problems than others.

Lack of money can also mean that the family lives in a bad area. Witnessing crimes and living around other out of control kids adds to the problem.

These are simply facts. No one is saying "every kid from a poor family is bad" or "every kid from a rich family is good".

But seriously, once we took them to an Imax, to see a film about Dolphins. Even though the little one was two. The only problem was that he was utterly amazed, and I mean "WOW papa, look at THAT!" amazed. Halfway through, the fugly batch in front turned around and asked if we couldn't just keep him a bit quieter.

I very nearly chose option 3. It's a farking IMAX you dumb cow. You don't come for the commentary.

I never said or implied she takes him to crowded places. Most of the time she can leave him at home with the hubby but every once in a while she can't help but take him with. She can't leave him at home if the hubby isn't there and usually she can't get a sitter on short notice. But being seen with your autistic child in a public place is in no way, poor parenting.

Nice. There's no way he could have heard that anywhere else, like, say, television. It's gotta be the dad.

Although I will say that acting out is one way children deal with abouse, but statistically, that abuse is more likely to come from his mother than his father. By the way, that data was really hard to find, so I don't blame you for having that misconception.

///At least thats what my parents told me, for all they know they got pissed off and bounced my head themselves
////Worked anyway

I had a kid who never acted up in restaurants so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Seriously, going somewhere with kids is pretty easy. I fed mine before we left just to make sure hunger wasn't an issue. Then I'd make sure she had something to do while we ate - like crayons and a coloring book, a stuff animal, etc. I'd get her something off the menu and ask for it to be delivered first. We had one incident where some old man kept staring at her and she freaked out. Hell, I freaked out. I'd look up and this old guy was staring at us. I ended up ordering some calamari and letting my daughter eat the tentacles, which grossed the old bastard out so he looked at someone else.

SomeFarkinFarmgirl: oldass31: Please note in my previous post that I was describing most of the cases that I have personally been exposed to. As the "classroom mother" at my daughter's school, I see a lot of kids with little guidance but lots of medication.

Fine. But please don't roll autism up with your statement about ADHD. They are vastly different disorders. I'm taking it that you're not a pediatrician or that you haven't been exposed to autistic children before because proper parenting does NOT and CANNOT reverse or prevent autism. Autism is largely genetic and like other disorders where parts of the brain are damaged, there is NO cure. I'm sure my friend would love to raise her autistic child just like she did with her other two children who, by the way, turned out perfectly normal.

The lesson here would appear to be: don't eat at O'Charley's. The article is obviously nothing but corporate CYA, and the guy working as manager is a jerk unhappy with his menial job and lashing out at innocent people.

/far more likely than the drivel all the child haters are spewing

oldass31: In case you are unaware, many "ADHD" children are often misdiagnosed as "autistic" which unfortunately has created many misconceptions about autism. These are the cases that I am referring to. By labelling excessively hyper children as "autistic", parents can enroll in federal programs which cover the medication. Not only do I believe that this is wrong, but it lessens the funding for children who truly do have an unfortunately uncontrollable disorder.

/and yes, I have been exposed to truly autistic children

Child molester and a young boy are walking into the woods together when the boy starts crying.

"What's the matter boy?"

"It's dark and scary walking through the woods!"

"Hey, at least you got me here with you. I gotta walk outta here alone!"
