I live in South Carolina, when your a child you get taught a alot of discipline.You say "No Ma'm/Sir" "Yes Ma'm/Sir,Say excuse me,and all that other crap. If people see your child doing that you WILL be seen as a bad parent or a push-over. My brother and I wound stay with my Grandparents, & they lived on a farm. They would take us to the market ALL the time. And My brother would always do some retarted,being loud,knocking things over,taking stuff. And I remiber my grandma whoop'n his azz....smh and said:"Boy im from the old school I will beat the hell outta you first and ask questions later! If You don't know how to get in line, I WILL GET YOU IN LINE!".....O I love my grand ma'ma. Ofcouse kids are going to whine and be alittle loud,but that's ok their kids! But when your child is yelling and acting crazy, then your just not teaching them discipline. Usullay kids would get a pop on the hand,small spanking,or a glace and their stop. I have seen other poeple step in when the parent isn't doing a good job too. It makes the parent look bad,but it's not my fualt if you can't control your child.
A lot of children get excited when on busses and trains as they don't go on them a lot. Kids also find it hard to sit still and quiet for an amount of time. If you put 2 children in a bus and tell them to be quiet, they will whisper, giggle, pinch each other, get grumpy, start with the 'muuuuum! He hit meeeeee!' and get whiney and wingey, then talk and swap seats and 'bus surf' et etc etc.... It's not necessarily bad parenting- kids just generally can't sit still for that long. But I do agree that it's annoying when traveling to have school aged children jumping around. What's worse though, is I used to catch a bus to work and there would sometimes be middle school and high school students on it. They would talk IN THE LOUDEST VOICES about smoking, drinking and having sex and how cool they were. That annoys me more than children being disruptive.
I think to every situation there's a different story. But I do agree with ^ because the children's acting wild and crazy...is only going to leave it to fall back on the parents. When the kids don't stop , it will cause people to look back and forth between the child and the parent. It's not the kid's fault most of the time. Most of the time it's lack of discipline and teaching how to behave in public(:
i think..no wonder this world is in such a mess. parents don't parent their children anymore. people have a problem with authority these days..well we need to have authority and we need to have parents that are man enough to say no to their kids. instead they let their kids make the rules and thats not right.
I think that kids are going to act like kids when they are young, but there is a point where the perent has to stop them.
its a disgrace , they should be told ta settle down its not just them that are users of the bus/train etc ..... x....x
