My neice and nephew are holy terrors! The boy has autism like my son,and the girl has no learning disability as far as we know. They let the boy do whatever he wants,to whoever he pleases. We met them out for lunch yesterday and i was so embarrassed! My nephew was filthy dirty,and my neice's hair was a fright. Their excuse was that they just woke up(whatever) My nephew was smacking his sister in the face,pulling her hair,and screaming!! The parents just sit there,or start yelling,but don't make them behave. My neice will purposely egg her brother on so he gets in trouble.The boy is almost 6,and the girl is almost 8. I've always insisted that my son behave where we go,and yesterday he was a perfect gentleman.Our forecast for these kids isn't a good one if they don't get them under control pronto! Needless to say,we avoid meeting them in public places!

Unless the child has special needs, I would say a child's behavior is a complete reflection on the parents. There are even ways to teach special needs children appropriate behavior. Children are going to attempt to pick up bad habits from daycare, school, and other public settings, but its the parents' sole responsibility to correct the behavior. IMO, a parent is doing their child a disservice by allowing him/her to be inappropriate. The child will grow up not knowing how to act in social situations and will probably be faced with many hardships when he/she has to learn things 'the hard way'.
