Why won't people control their kids???!??? - Page 2

post #16 of 128
My mom and I were at a mall and two kids (5 & 7) were throwing a complete fit. Parents just sat there and allowed this to happen. I looked at my mom and asked "Did we ever do that in public?" She replied "Do you think you would have survived this long if you had?"

All she ever had to do with all 6 kids is just look at us and we would stop instantly. I now have that look for my kids. They know if they act up we leave and they will be lucky if I don't put them under the car. Just kidding--sort of.

Your friend was a dear to help the bride and family out and I so would have demanded money from the drunk idiots immediately. If they didn't have the money right there I would have sold them to the circus. Tigers gotta eat and all lol.

That couple probably should have been asked to take their children elsewhere. I am one of those parents of a very hyper active 5 yr old but we work really hard to keep him under wraps - or just leave him with a sitter for something such as that. HOWEVER, when we take him anywhere there is a cake, he's pretty much an angel and doesn't even go near it. He swiped the basketweave off one of my cakes (at home) a couple of years ago and I had to call my husband home from work as it would have been a sin for me to punish him as angry as I was. From that point forward, he has a HIGH respect for all cakes....lol....at least we've got one thing under control!

Granddaughter tried throwing a fit while we were out shopping one day, so I reprimanded her. Then her mom (my daughter) told her to calm down and act right. Granddaughter said to mom, "Well, BANNA started it!" icon_eek.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif Her mom laughed and said, "Now you're in trouble for telling on gramma!"

LMAO!
No kidding....some people.
I am just glad it was not my cake...I would have been a lot less classy for sure.

I can' never figure why kids that young need to be at a wedding/reception anyway. They are bored, don't know why they are there, and in so many cases act up and make things miserable for others.

When I told some friends my wedding was to be kid free I actually got shocked stares! Why? It is a grown-up party, not a Chuckie-Cheese.

I felt worst for the bride, to have her lovely cake ruined, and I hope the yelling we heard as we left ended with the non-caring parents paying up and heading out. It certainly sounded like they weren't going to get away with it! icon_biggrin.gif

I have many children and at a recent wedding I was asked why they were not with me.
Duh, because they are young, tired at this time of the day, it is a long party and this isn't about my cute kids...it's a special day for the couple. I never take them to places where their behavior would distract from the purpose of the event. Why make us both uncomfortable.

And any party serving alcohol is not an event where children should be present. icon_confused.gificon_confused.gif That was their first mistake. One of them staying sober to rein in the children was there second mistake. There was a landslide of mistakes that followed.

Your friend has class and more patience than I can imagine. Kudos to her for calm under pressure.

Here's one I will never forget. My nephew passed away 10 years ago when he was 10 years old. ANOTHER SIL brings her 2 small kids to the funeral. As soon as I saw them I wondered why she didn't get a sitter. Anyway they are running around and she keeps telling them to stop. Of course they are not listening. One of them runs into one of the flower arrangements and it topples over onto the next one and so on like a row of dominos, the last one SMASHES INTO THE COFFIN WHERE OUR NEPHEW IS LAID OUT!! icon_sad.gif Then she takes the kids outside to scold them. It was unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!! Everyone was so upset!!

I just can't figure out some people, even relatives

That is so horrible. I however did take my son who was 1 at the time to my best friend's mother's funeral. They said they wanted him there. He sat on my lap and if he had tried running around we would have been out of that church SO fast. However my best friend and her brother were glad to have DS there because for a few minutes it made them forget their sadness as their mom loved DS.

ugh.. some people's parents just don't raise them with any sense, do they?

i think there is a HUGE difference in a 1 (or under) child (who may or may not be nursing) and a 3, 4 or even my 6 1/2 yr old. if they are able to run around like that, maybe the best place for them is not a funeral or a wedding. as a pp stated, weddings & funerals are NOT chuck-e-cheese. don't get me wrong, i adore my children (and most young children), i am a preschool teacher. but there is a time and a place for small ones. and if parents aren't going to have any control over their little ones and treat these events as if it's just another day at the park, they shouldn't bring them. i have NO qualms mentioning on an invite that a particular event or evening is "adults only".

btw, you friend is SUPER classy. she went way above and beyond what she needed to do. i hope that bride's day wasn't ruined by a couple of miniture hooligans!

While I completely agree that children should not be allowed at formal events unless thier parents can control them...many adults should not be either.

A friend of a friend showed up to the funeral of a very close family member drunk out of thier mind. Thank god I was too upset at the time to even notice (I was told later) because I would have had no problem being the one to escourt them out and telling them to never be seen at a family event of mine ever again.

My opinion has always been that women should have to apply to get their ovaries turned on. There should be a tough arduous screening process! (and A LOT of rejected applicants!) icon_lol.gif
