over at booju_newju
posts an article about a kid stomping through a sand painting
being made by some Buddhist monks at Union Station in Kansas City. she posts the article, which notes that the mother was nowhere to be seen until AFTER the kid has destroyed the monks' work, then just picks him up and takes off. she then asks the sensible question: Do you think the mother should have reported it? Would you have reported it or would you have took off?
most of those there immediately say they would have reported/apologized to the monks and made the kid apologize.
then there's this genius
"oh please...it's not a crime! if the monks didn't want it touched, they should have done it somewhere where no one would bother it! i'd apologize, but still who cares because it's just a TODDLER!!"
yea way to be an entitlement twit, princess. :eyeroll: being brat-sized is not a free license to let yours run wild.
when everyone tells her she's wrong and points out that's there rope around the monks' work area (an obvious sign to MOST people (even young brats!) that you Do Not Go In That Area, she gets all butthurt
and claims parenting is "oppressing" a kid's free spirit. well now, doesn't that explain all the ill-behaved brats that come in my store?! i'll just make a note of that!
bonus stupid: threekidsinky
asks glamscene if she has children
says no, but she babysits a niece three times a week. threekidsinky
's response? "Just like I thought!"
whatev, lady. i have a five year old niece and a four year old nephew. last October, i took said niece to the local Powwow held by the Four Winds Council. at one point, we had to get a temporary seat to watch a lady i knew as a customer from my store do a special dance from her tribe. we were pretty close to the drummers, who had their area obviously roped off. i pointed it out to my niece and told her she could watch and look at the drummers after we watched Acosia's dance, but she had to mind the ropes. she understood.
and guess what else? I never let her out of my sight/reach.
if you want to be a sucky parent, then you do that. but don't expect not to be told you ARE one--whether it's by a CFer or even the other parents in booju.
