Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Parents Take Heed


What I'd like to do with the unsupervised, loud, obnoxious kids I encountered in the theatre today.

It's time to open up a can on the parents first; then the kids!

Yes... Those parents don't spank.

I had the same experience at the movies. I took my 6 and 5 year old. My 5 year old has autism.

This lady comes in with 2 kids.. her brats were running all over the theatre, jumping from seat to seat. She would call their name and they wouldn't come, then she waited forever to come get them.

My boys..;-)
Of course were sitting still not moving, and eating popcorn.
I think Isaac may have said something loud 2 times, but I told him to be quiet, and he did. (He has been trained well before he hit the age of 5.. That is why).

Actually, to brag more... My 5 year old was used in a video to train new therapists because his behavior is so good. HA!!

I am sorry, but we spanked.. I rarely have to spank my 6 year old these days. We take away privileges too.. and stick with it.

Not bragging, but sick of hearing that spanking is wrong.
The psycho babble way of thinking about parenting is ruining our kids..

Not only driving 99 with the kid on the hood, but they're driving in the grass. Wonder if they're going to be able to swerve around that sign in time.

Spanking works. You don't have to be brutal, and you don't have to do it very often before the child catches on.

Personal opinion: If the parents set no limits on the child, the child feels less loved.

Boundaries on behaviour gives the child a secure area to operate where his/her actions are acceptable, and they know outside that area they will meet with displeasure and possible punishment. It sets a stable framework for their position within the family.

Mahndisa: these kids were maybe 10, 11 or so. And NS: no parents in sight but, yes, the parents should really be placed on the hood first.

Rebecca: good for you, and your kids made your point right in front of you and other audience members!

Fish: boundaries, behavior, discipline -- all excellent points and ideas that should have been expressed and enforced by the parents years and years prior to those kids entering the theatre! Precisely!

I used to have an old cane-like thing that I got at a carnival. It was thin and whippy and had a silver ball on top. My kids (six) were punished more by the command to "go get the cane" than they ever were by its use. (my mother used to have me "go cut a switch of the lilac tree" I repented more with that knife in my hand, walking to the lilac bush than any other time. I really can't recall a switching (though I know that they happened) but I remember those walks to the lilac tree with real vividness. (even at seventy plus.)

3S10: Yeah. Funny how THAT works. And it wasn't the actual carrying out of the feat; it was the threat and thought thereof.
