We were at Walmart today and this man and his 3 kids were with him. Daughter looked 7,son,5,and 2nd son,3. I heard the dad say it was her job to look after her brothers while in the store. The 3 year old would lag behind and the dad would yell at the daughter for not watching him. The girl couldn't get to the little one because the aisle was really busy. The dad went up and grabbed the 3 year old by the coat,picked him up off his feet and shook him and screamed in his face,"you better listen to me or else!" The little guy looked terrified.
I wanted to say "hey,put the 3 year old in the cart. he can't wander that way and you won't have to resort to terrorizing your kid!"
I don't think its fair to expect a 7 year old to have to corral her brothers in the store.
