Lately it seems like everyone I hear or see is being dragged around by their child.
At McDonalds today I watched as a mom and dad tried desperatly to get their dd (about 3) down from the slide. She screamed no, and go away. And threw her shoes, (that she shouldnt have had) down at them.
They laughed and rolled their eyes. As if it was cute.
After about 15 minutes of this they literally CAUGHT her as she came down and she went into hysterics. She refused to put on her shoes and coat and they fought her all the way to the car!
I was amazed. I have seen SOOOO Many lately that I am begining to think we have become a society that bows to the whims of our children. What do you think?

Blah. I saw something similar one day where a couple couldn't get their toddler to hold their hands in the parking lot. When she took off into the sea of cars, dad laughs and shouts "You can't catch me!" and engaged his toddler in a game of tag in the busy parking lot. I keep waiting to hear about this family on the news.

i have a 2 year old and she throws fits alot now and honestly i don't really know what to do in public! i mean at home i can put her in time out or a spanking if she needs it but you can't really do that in public. i tried the time out in public and it was a joke and you can't really discipline in public with out being afraid someone will turn you in and take your kids. so if you have any insight please share
