What is wrong with some parents??

So I take my son to an egg hunt this morning- he is grouped with other kids his age (8-10) and as soon as they let the kids go parents are calling their kids over to point out where the eggs are. Do parents really need their kids to "win" that bad???

  • One time we went to a soccor game and some woman was yelling at her son kick it harder her son was a ball hog and she would say stuff like if they will not do it take it from them and do it yourself. when he missed a couple games and the team won she started to shut up. Some parents need it so bad more then the kid does. It sucks

  • I helped my kids when they were under the age of 5, but 8 and 10 year olds seems kinda funny. But some parents just wish they where out there too.
