people who cant/dont control their children.
Arrgghhh...that one drives me up the wall. They just sit there while their kid screams his or her fool head off. (or worse, they try and coddle the
child who is doing it)...
Man, I'd have been spitting teeth if I acted up like that in a store, when I was a kid. Of course, nowadays, if you even spank your kid, you could
risk jail time, losing your kids, etc. It's ridiculous to on one hand make the parent responsible for a child's actions, and yet take away a tool that
has worked for CENTURIES....
I can count the number of times I was spanked without even using my toes, just fingers, but still, the THREAT of it was effective enough of a
deterrent. (to be honest, it wasn't the pain, or even embarrassment...it was knowing that I disappointed them THAT MUCH that they felt they had to do
it). These days though, it's an empty threat, and worse, the kids KNOW it because they are TOLD it is.
And then, we wonder why today's youth seems even more rebellious... Hmmm....go figure...
