I am appalled by the number of parents who allow their children to be disruptive in restaurants and other establishments. Earlier today I was trying to enjoy a nice meal downtown, while a woman at a nearby table was doing nothing to get her children to stop screaming. The children did not appear to be upset or frustrated. From my observations, they seemed unusually hyper and would periodically scream to the top of their lungs for no apparent reason. It was loud enough that even 1/2 hour after they left, my ears still hurt. I would never allow my children to behave that way in public. Sure, children will do what they do, but this woman made absolutely no move whatsoever to discipline her children. She never once even asked her child to stop screaming, or to be quiet or anything else. The woman just ignored it and continued doing her thing.
I do not understand this. What is with some parents these days?
