Okay those of you who really know me know that I adore children okay most children there are exceptions!! For example the mighty mites running around yelling and screaming in the middle of the supermarket ~ well any store for that matter. I understand kids will be kids and some are more hyper than others. I don’t however understand why parents think that its okay for us to have to dodge their unwatched ill mannered children! And the screaming oh my lord when you can hear them from across an entire Army Commissary very clearly its annoying and when you are standing next to said child/children its beyond words. There is no excuse for this behavior I have heard them all and they just don’t wash with me. If you give them a warning and then follow through by PUTTING BACK THEIR DAMN COCOA PUFFS AND WALK OUT they will stop!!! I have actually done this and yes they cry all the way home but believe me when you go back later and say if you do it again we are leaving they know you are ACTUALLY LEAVING. Empty threats are the tactics of lazy parents who in turn raise up ill mannered children.
