I guess this is the thread where inconsiderate parents justify being inconsiderate.

No it is where inconsiderate people justify being inconsiderate.

Yes she does.  She just should not be dickish about it if she chooses to share it with the parent.

jayhawk88: Falstaff: As a new father of twin girls, feel free to express any opinion you want.  I may laugh, I may tell you off.  Either way, we'll be good.

Do NOT, however, just walk up and start rubbing their cheek or stroking their hair.  I just about knocked a woman out last night for doing that.  Didn't say two words to me, just walks up and starts rubbing my youngest's head.  Creepy as hell.

The twins in public thing is one of the weirdest phenomenon ever. I can't say we ever had a "strangers touching" problem, but just everywhere, everyone has to know "do they run in your family" or "are they identical". It does lessen the older they get, though.


Maybe you guys can answer this. Do you dress your twins in identical outfits, if so, why? Is there a twin discount like buy one get one half off or something? And wouldn't that cause identity issues? Anyway, it's creepy, reminds me of The Shining.

Hey oblivious parents, if you don't want people telling you to shut your bratty kids up don't be shiatty parents. Or don't take your bratty kids out to restaurants but that also falls under the category of not being shiatty parents.

I guess don't be shiatty parents is the central theme to my rant.

I have no full-time children but I have a few nieces and nephews that I see every once in a while and I've raised an extremely well-behaved dog, so I really think that my opinion on parenting has merit.
 
2013-09-17 07:36:12 AM
My Mom had 4 children and, back in the day, you were still permitted to spank your child and that took care of most behavioral issues.  I honestly can't remember me or any of my 3 brothers ever throwing a fit.  I'm sure we must have, but you could count on old Mom lowering the boom and that stemmed most bad behavior.

Too bad some stupid jerkoffs had to make that a crime.

earthwirm: Bslim: Keep your filthy crotchfruit at home.

Yes, kids should never be allowed out into the world to learn and grow.


When you teach them how to behave they are welcome to go out into the world to learn and grow. If you refuse to teach them discipline, keep them locked up at home. It will prepare them for a life they will most likely spend in jail.

That's misconstruing what she said by reading the letter of it as opposed to the intent.

 Plenty will display that sense of entitlement coupled with ignorance and selfishness. It's an oafish, arrogant and despicable attitude that says you have a right to be free of encountering a child on a public bus.
 
2013-09-17 07:40:26 AM
I have no problem with kids having a meltdown (which happens, deal with it). I DO have a problem if the response isn't to remove the child from the area or at least minimize the issue as best someone can (taking the child to the bathroom on a plane, for example). If the general response from the parent is "Not this sh** again", I'm much less sympathetic.

Kids are going to be kids, but crappy parenting is what defines them.

Kid melting down in a utilitarian place like a grocery store? Who cares. At a nice restaurant, say Red Lobster or Olive Garden? Not cool man.

2013-09-17 07:41:41 AM
When my kids were at the age where they would do shiat like that in public, my wife or I would take them outside and wait for them to calm down before returning. Parents these days simply have no farking respect for the people around them. They feel if they have to listen to their spoiled brat throwing a fit, everyone else should have to as well.

If you're in the damn grocery store and your kid is throwing a fit, it's you job as a parent to leave, not drag him through the place kicking and screaming. Yes it's inconvenient. Yes it means your schedule is going to be thrown off. So what, dinner gets on the table late that night, that's life. The rest of the world should not have to put up with your brats poor behavior.

Bear in mind that mine are fraternal twins (not identical) and are only 9 months old, but we only dress them alike for the X months old photos.  Otherwise, they G`ET

I think the good parents hate the "Don't you dare give me a dirty look because I'm letting my five-year-old and my three-year-old chug Mountain Dew and play 'Scream Tag' in the aisles at this 10PM showing of 'I Spit On Your Grave'"-type parents more than the non-parents hate them.

Yes, this too!   It really cracks me up when I'm out drinking,  partying, and being raunchy in Vegas at 2am... but I get dirty looks from the parents rolling their tired/hungry/cranky children around in the middle of the night.   I chose not to have kids, so I can choose when/where/what I want to do in the middle of the night.
You chose to create a f*ck trophy; so take care of it!  That means reasonable bed times, more sober living; and going to Disney instead of Vegas.

//Seriously?  How bad of a parent are you to choose Vegas over Disney?

GoldSpider: Something tells me that many of these parents who want you to "just deal with" their shrieking crotchfruit have a slightly different opinion on second-hand smoke.


And in the reverse: I know for a fact that MANY (by many I mean among my own experiences) 'anti child' people are perfectly okay smoking in public, or drinking and driving, or throwing their own temper tantrums, and expect everyone to 'just deal with it'

earthwirm: Mugato: I have a niece and nephew I take out sometimes and I've never had any problems with their throwing a tantrum or acting up. Take some parenting classes, get a nanny or go to the nearest PetSmart and buy a muzzle. Failing all of that, don't get all indignant when someone expresses annoyance at your shrieking spawn.No one should yell at you or anything but don't get all uppity if someone's natural reaction is to look annoyed in your direction.

Wow, you sound like a parenting expert.


I should hire you as my nanny since you are such an expert. I have 4 children and 3 are boys. Three of them are easy going. I get compliments everywhere I go with them. One is more difficult. He is stubborn and harder to control. He will break you.

2013-09-17 07:46:20 AM
Well, that was was written in an insufferable style.

We tolerated this guy when he was a child and behaved badly. He is now obligated to tolerate other children as an adult. It's so simple.

It's called being a good member of an evolving species.
 
2013-09-17 07:47:21 AM
You don't have to be a good singer to know when someone is bombing a song. Similarly, I don't have to be a parent to know when someone is bad at it. I find it weird how someone becomes a parent and suddenly they're grafted with all this knowledge the childless obviously could never know, right? All those parents that claim to be above opinions and criticism forget that everyone the biggest idiots seems to be able to keep their children alive and by virtue of the fact that we all figure out parenting as an instinct (or we'd die out), they aren't really much more knowledgeable than the rest of us.

If a child throws a tantrum in public, you just need to look up at the shiatty, effete parents. That all being said, the large majority of parents and children aren't the problem.

Every jackass is an expert on parenting before they have any kids of their own. When they do, they discover that parenting is not as simple or as black-and-white as they thought. Moreover, they discover that their priority is always the safety, discipline, and well-being of their child, over the comfort, convenience, and opinions of random passersby.

Contempt, no. They are wonderful people who have always been there for me. Much like the parents of my friends for them, my co-workers, myself for mine, etc. However, many people seem to think that parenting grants magic knowledge or that having (or not having) children affects the truth value of a person's statements, and that I find amusing.

Except discipline creates comfort and conveniences for a passerby. Lack of discipline fosters opinions in a passerby.

Don't want people to express their opinions about you being a shiaty parent, don't be a shiaty parent.
