Walking out of the supermarket tonight with my hubby (had an ice cream craving), and we passed a family on their way in. Mom, Dad, and two boys about 6 and 8. The older boy energetically ran about 10 feet in front to where a small 3 foot wall was, and did what I thought was a normal kid thing, he jumped up and sat on the wall for a minute. He was going to walk the top of it, when his mother yells in the nastiest tone, "Joey, what are you doing?? Get off of there. You are such an embarrassment!"
Even though I realize she may be trying to teach him something, and I only got a small glimpse of her parenting, I wanted to tell her she was an embarrassment to herself. I just didn't think that approach would do any good.
What can we do when parents attack their children instead of their behavior?
