I Wish I Could Discipline Other Peoples Kids

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 879 People

    When I grew up in the early 50s the whole

    village took care of raising the kids. It should be like that again. There was no place for us to misbehave and get unnoticed.

    Today, I was holding my nephew(12weeks old)

    and one of his cousins(2 years old) walked up and threw a toy at his head. Thankfully it was a rubber duck and not the matchbox cars he had been holding. My sister calmly took the 2 year old and set him on the couch in time out for doing that. The boys mother was not in the...

    Smack!

    I seriously hate kids potty mouths and no respect! When they talk out of line I wish I could just smack them across their face.

    One Time Teacher In The 1960's

    I left Teacher Training College in 1960 and taught at a primary school for ages 5 - 8 years old. In those days CP was allowed and teachers were allowed to smack or send a child to the school head. In my case I chose to deal with things myself as I was unhappy with the use of...

    Spanking A Professor'S Kid

    I was in graduate school. One of my favorite professors asked me to babysit his 8 year old son. I'm not too crazy about kids and I didn't want to, but was afraid to turn him down. I think he noticed my reluctance, which is when he admitted that the kid was a bit of a handful and...

    Seriously like wild little kids

    who run around the stores screaming or parents who don't at least attempt to make their kid stop crying in public. And I hate when people say "they're just kids they don't know any better" WRONG my mom was a great parent and never did me or my siblings act out in public.

    Kids Misbehaving At Work

    Some kids carry on like a baby,

    just about every time I go to a shop there seems to be a kid screaming and yelling and I'm getting sick of it, I feel liked going up to the parent and say: "Control your child!" But it's really annoying but I know I can't do anything to the kid. Arrrr just so god dam annoying.

    Bratty children get on my nerves.

    People are too preocupied by making money and being politically correct to discipline their children. A 3 yr old only understands so much hence tantrums in the floor. So, before you try and 'reason' with said 3 yr old (after he's bloodied the back of my ankles by pushing your...

    uninterrupted in public places like restaurants and shops while pretending not to notice. Why must we suffer lazy parents?!

    Disciplining The Step Daughter

    So often I wish I could discipline my SD. She is 8, pushing her boundaries, lying, sneaking, rough with my 9 month old daughter. And all I can do is send her to a corner for a time out. Her daddy is afraid to do much either since SD has already lied to the cops about him hitting...

    OMG

    My sister has two boys and one has grown out of it but the youngest goes around begging for a spanking. He will not mind at all. He will yell and say NO!!! Even take a swing at you if he doesn't get his way. I'm sure he will be ok eventually, but OMG......

    Yup

    My neighbor... I'm not sure whether he has too much or too little discipline. Sometimes, in the backyard, her daughter screams and annoys other people. What I've noticed though is that he also yells at his daughter constantly and seems to go overboard.
