We were looking at Dvds at Target today and there was man and his son, who looked about 12, shopping for video games. From what I heard the son was trying to bully the dad into buying world of warcraft or something like that. The dad kept stelling him "no, mom doesn't want you to play that". The kid whined and whined, called his dad an A*&hole and brushed by him so hard, the dad tripped back and made some games fall off the wall.
I felt bad for the guy, who seemed to be trying to do something nice for his son, but that it backfired. The kid was a snot and I wanted to yell at him myself!
Ever witnessed a kids being a brat? What is your thoughts when you see this?

I feel bad for both the kid and his dad. However, I wouldn't do anything in those situations. Also, it could be that the parents are divorced and the dad was trying to spend time with his son, but he hasn't been in the kid's life very often. Kids get like that in those situations. Or the kid has ADHD or something else to make him act that way. I have ADHD and am very impatient and impulsive and b!tchy. It has taken a long time for me to learn how to control those emotions. A 12 yr old has enough going on that it's just too difficult for them to control those emotions if they have ADHD, etc. But I know that my kids have tried to act that way and that's when I walk back to the car and tell them that they get nothing until they've earned it. And they weren't earning it by acting that way.
