A stranger yelled at my kid! (VENT! Long...) - Page 5

post #41 of 47
Sorry, but I'm not sure about this age of reasoning thing. Both my kids understand indoor and outdoor behaviours, and have since they could walk/talk. I know it's harder for a one year old, but that's about the time the hand spankings (lightly, but enough to feel) start around our house. They learn very quickly about what is acceptable and what is not. I would rather hear a kid throw a tantrum and see the parent handling it properly (in my eyes), than to hear a couple of kids being loud for the sake of being loud.

I'm certainly not saying that every kid is perfect, but there's a big difference between one parent trying to get stuff done quickly, and two parents just seeming oblivious to other people's feelings.

Maybe she was talking to the voices in her head

I hope that the girl that yelled at your children felt bad for a bit at least. What if she says "shut up" to a child with special needs? that's a whole different story though, I just thought about that.

I have a lot of kids and I would never allow that behavior from my children. Happy noises or mad noises, they are annoying none the less. People should not need to be "bothered" by the loud shrieks of children. The echo on top of that and other children chiming in would have sent me over the top too. I would not have yelled "shut up", but I would not have been a happy camper.

I think that part of teaching respect and showing respect is teaching correct behavior from a VERY YOUNG age. The other shoppers in the store were not being respected by you or your children....they were innocently doing their shopping and should not have to leave or be uncomfortable because of your child and their noise.

Not attacking you (or your kids) but you must look at it from the other shoppers point of view........your kids were making loud noises and there was nothing that the other shoppers could do, except listen to your child echoing in the entire store.

we have all been there....some make different choices as to how to handle it.

Other people never think our kids are as "precious" as the parents do. I struggled with similar situations when my kids were little, but like other people said, I would remove them from the store so as to not impact other people trying to shop.

I totally agree. Happy, mad or sad if your child is loud enough to disturb the people around it is rude to remain in the store.

You know that's exactly what I was thinking.
