  Three cheers for AirTran!!!
Why are other people always expected to show understanding for YOUR unruly child? I've been listening to a lot of supposed experts on how to raise children talk about not yelling or hitting or scolding children for their behavior. These so called experts talk about ignoring the child that's throwing a tantrum. In other words, make everyone else deal with your poor parenting skills. The other one I love is...reason with the child. Think about that for one second. Let's reason with a 3 year old. Why not and then when we get home, we can reason with the dog too! The results will be about the same.

I haven't been able to find any information about the parents. We know the child is 3, but how old are the parents? Grandpa is 57 which tells me that the parents can't be very old. So, maybe, the real issue here is children raising children?

I've been on plenty of flights. I travel for my work and have for about 15 years. I've never once seen an airline pull a family off a plane for a crying baby. What this tells me is that this little girl was doing just a little bit more than crying! And depending on what story you listen to she most definately was doing a little more!

Where were all these so called experts when I was getting spanked for my bad behavior? I can tell you that back in the day as they say, back when it was okay to discipline your children, this would not have been an issue.

And like Kerry, I've had to put up with someone elses ill behaved child because they didn't have the brains or guts to handle it themselves. I've also given toddlers the "eye" and that's usually enough. The look of shock on that face tells me all I need to know, mommy and daddy never look at me or yell at me, who are you to do it?

My answer, someon had to do it!!!
 
Comments:
I love the blog that you have. I was wondering if you would link my blog to yours and in return I would do the same for your blog. If you want to, my site name is American Legends and the URL is:

www.americanlegends.blogspot.com

If you want to do this just go to my blog and in one of the comments just write your blog name and the URL and I will add it to my site.

Thanks,
David
