I saw a mother screaming at the top of her lungs at a little
girl, who looked to be about four, because she tried to step on the
cart and ride it. She grabbed the girls arm HARD and pulled her
off. I wanted to cry.
I hate seeing parents over react to stupid things. I figure that
just because a parent isn't disciplining in public doesn't mean
they aren't disciplining - they just might want to do it in a more
private setting. Even so, I'd rather see lackadaisical parents than
borderline abusive any day.
