I took my two kids out to pizza for dinner. The kids wanted to play games and I gave them some money. They used it and wanted more money. I always give them only 2 quarters. They started whinning and throwing a fit. I warned we would get the pizza to go if they did not start behaving. I did not use the best tone, but I was not losing control. The pizza came and we ate the pizza. I was reading an important email on my phone while eating. The kids were bothering each other but acting pretty good for them. A woman from another table came up to me and said, "If you spent half the time with your kids that you did on your phone......" I was so shocked and told her to mind her own business. She said, "You have been on the phone the whole time." I repeated what I had said and went back to my phone. She left with the man she was with. MY kids are on the austim spectrum, but can be much worse.Answer Question

Unless her nosey self came down from a cloud to tell you that well no it was none of her business. I know when my children were young there was never enough time to do anything it seemed like especially anything for myself. Just for your own sake step back and remember they do grow up so very quickly and the older they get the less time they want to spend with you.

She should only be expecting the balance due. You as a parent YOU should have stepped up right away with the entire amount. Then make your boy work it off at home or pay you in installments. In the real world "sorry" isn't good enough--one must make restitution. You should know this and should not have made your neighbor wait for your kids to come up with the money.
