Do You Suppose We Adults Could Get Away With Behaving The Way Undisciplined Children Do?For the record, I don't hate kids, but I certainly don't want any, I can relate to a lot of the stories posted here.
It is often the butt hurt or ineffectual parent who will respond to topics such as -Stop your kid from screaming in a restaurant- with, "You were a kid once!", "If you don't like screaming, stay home!", or "My kid has _______ disorder, he can't help it". Because they're kids, not only are we not supposed to say anything about annoying behavior, we're also not even supposed to be annoyed. And if we do and we are, we're kid haters, mentally ill, mean, selfish, or some combination of those.
I'm wondering how long it would take for establishment managers to throw us out or the cops to be called if we, as adults, started running through the aisles, screaming, crawling under tables, ramming others' legs with a shopping cart, all that stuff that we're supposed to accept from three feet terrors because "They're just CHILDREN"?
