  • I'm more annoyed by people who don't punish their children at all and let them run crazy in public places!

  • I don't really like to see people yell at their kids but I do spank my son in public. If he does something wrong and needs to be spanked or have his hand swatted we will do it. If I can go around a corner and do it I will but I am not going to let him get away with doing something that he is not supposed to be doing.

  • Well yes and no. Sometimes kids REALLY push it, and maybe the only way to put them in their place is to embarrass them in public. I'm sure no mother enjoys doing this, but kids get in the mall and grocery store and suddenly forget ALL the rules or simply disobey. I hope to never have to do this. As another pp said, I hate more when people don't discipline their kids or bribe them with candy or toys.

  • I would not spank my kids in public...I don't really spank anyway...but I believe discipline should be done without humiliation or breaking the child's spirit...and you really cannot avoid those two things by spanking...especially in public...that is just my philosophy on the discipline thing. I also am dead set against putting a child in the corner facing the wall like they should be ashamed to exist...I just think it is degrading.

  • I get annoyed how they run around the stores like playing hide and go seek.

  • I agree with RENEEK3. The parents that do discipline their kids in public need a award.
