First incident: I was standing in line waiting to get my drink while SO took DS to find a table. All of a sudden, I get bumped kinda hard from behind. So I look to see who bumped me and a kid, around 7 or so, is walking away looking at me like he's waiting for me to apologize to him. When did it become ok to not teach our children manners? I bite my tongue and don't say anything. Just brush it off as poor parenting.
Second incident: DS and I are sitting alone at the table. I'm trying to feed him when a little girl comes up. She's maybe 3. She belongs to the family 2 tables behind me. She says hi to him and talks to him a little. Her family also has a baby, so at first its kinda cute. Then she leans in close to his face, looks at me, then coughs into her elbow. I think good her parents taught her some hygiene. She does this a couple more times as I'm trying to feed him. Then she leans into his face and tries to kiss him. I gently ask her not to get in his face. Shortly after she runs off, while I look around for her parents. They were sitting at the table the whole time. Didn't move to collect her. Nothing. Are there really parents that think this is ok? I don't want any stranger in my kids face, especially not your germy child.
What would you mamas have done? Would these things have annoyed you too? Do you ever wonder if people are ever actually teaching their kids anything these days?
