AverageAmericanGuy: When kids get rowdy, you take them outside.  It's fine to be autistic, but if you can't behave, then you can't be with others in a public place. This kid isn't learning that.
As for the rest of us, we should show compassion like this mystery man.


When normal kids get rowdy, yes, take them outside. That's exactly what you should do.
Often when autistic kids throw a fit that's what you should do.

But when certain autistic kids throw a fit giving them any kind of reaction only encourages them.

I completely understand that sometimes this can annoy other people. I don't like having to hear the kid in the next booth having a tantrum either.
But literally the only way to teach these kids proper behavior is to explain what is expected of them, to put them in that situation, then to reinforce good behavior and not reinforce bad behavior.

And punishing some of these kids actually reinforces the behavior. Sometimes the best reaction is to just not react.

Remember, these aren't normal kids and the normal methods just don't work for them.

Your defective kid does not have the right to disrupt a group of people just because your junk sperm and broken eggs can't divide correctly.

Came here to break up what I thought was going to be a happy joy-fest with a joke about people being "special." That was wrecked pretty early on, then there was a junk sperm and broken egg comment, and I just can't even compete.

So I'm going to turn it around 180 and say I think it's great there are some incredible people still out there doing great things. Makes me happy.

/Would've love to have gotten in on the "special people" joke first, though

For fark's sake. A pizza place is exactly where you take a kid with behavioral issues to try and teach them appropriate behaviors in public.  When I go to a pizza joint I expect a noisy environment.  If any of you Farkers are going to pizza joints expecting to not hear kids screaming, you are most likely every bit as mentally retarded as the people you hate.

Honestly, I wonder if some of the commentators in this thread have ever actually left their houses  It's not like this kid ruined your meal at a five star restaurant.  It's a farking pizza place.

Notabunny: Years from now, when you have kids of your own, you'll understand how silly you sound.


I have three kids.  They've never been a burden to people around them for more than 5 seconds.  I didn't take them to places they could annoy people until they were old enough to obey simple instructions, like, "shhhh", or the more playful, "hey sucka, cool it, you're bein' a nutball", followed by a Gibbs-style bip on the back of the head.

My oldest is loud and a little but hyper.  I give him a gentle kick in the pants when he's over doing it, or "Hey man, you're at a 9.  I need you at like a 6, 'k?"  I honestly can't remember a single time, ever, being embarrassed because one of my rugrats was acting like a fool in public.  And not because they are incapable - at home they are a never-ending source of noise and general discontent - they just know that when Dad says "cool it", it's time to cool it, or they're gonna lose something they want - video game time, sleepover privileges, etc.

It helps a lot, too, to remind them, before we go somewhere, what the behavior code is for the environment.

"Hey guys, huddle up - this is a restaurant.  Talk, enjoy yourselves, but use your manners, and keep your voices down.  Joey, don't order two racks of ribs, ya won't finish em.  Deal?"

"Got it Dad".

If they are too young to understand that, they are just too young for that environment. Find some other way to entertain the family.  Hit the park, barbeque, go swimming, play in the yard with them.  FFS, you can spray kids with a hose for three hours and they'll be mad as hell that you're stopping.

Maybe, JUST maybe, a bit more emphasis is needed on teaching children to have manners in public BEFORE they are taken into public.

Occam's Nailfile: Chuck E Cheese's? Sure. Joe's Pizza and Pasta? Not so much.


OK.  Agree to disagree, I guess.

I don't have any special affinity to children.  I raised one, but I never produced one.  But love or hatred of children aside, life has taught me that going to a place called something like "Stag 'n Doe Pizza House" in bumfark North Carolina means there is a greater than 50% chance I will encounter loud kids and/or a beer swilling softball team.  If I want a quiet meal I will go elsewhere.

Wrong, subby. The "Cool" tag would have applied if the customer had smashed the little tard's teeth in with a hammer that he carries just for such occasions, then forced the subnorm to suck his mother's cock with his toothless maw.

generally, I would agree with you. however, did you read the part where the kid has had 3 brain surgeries so far?

any kid who has had 3 brain surgeries can do whatever the fark he wants

Occam's Nailfile: I dig that. But there's a difference between fun, boisterous people and a screaming, fit-throwing kid. One is tolerable, the other makes people want to pour gasoline in their ears and light a match.


And I dig that.  I guess I'm fortunate that the daughter I raised never had issues like this kid did.  But if she had, I imagine my wife and I would have taken her to a place like Stag 'n Doe Pizza House in Bumfark, North Carolina once in a while.  Not because we selfishly wanted a night out, as I can't imagine taking a kid like this out in public is a relaxing experience.  But because it was a chance to try and teach the kid some social skills in an environment where people should expect a lot of noise.

Most pizza places DELIVER. Work that shiat out at home. Why should I have MY meal ruined just because you can't train your monkey?


Did you see the picture of that place?  Rural pizza places don't deliver because there's no way to get the food there in any reasonable amount of time.  You're frequently dealing with a delivery area of over 30-40 square miles just to get enough customers for it to make sense, but then you can't afford a fleet of drivers to get it there in time.

It's something I do often enough that I knew it was him and whooped back twice as loud as I turned around. Except when I turned around there was a chubby retarded boy who apparently had made the original noise, his mom, and what looked like his grandmom staring at me. I felt kinda bad.

Well that was darned neighborly. Restored my faith in humanity a bit after being in these threads all day.

I'd like to buy that person half a beer (cause that's all I can afford, but dammit I'll do it).

The kid should get a nice full day in a big park with a great group of kids I know who like to volunteer. He would have 25 middle school girl chaperones, and he could just go nuts,

Mom can chill in the shade, and I'll mix the music for her.
