I was getting caught up with other blogs, and Read a great post by my friend Stacie at Super Mommy To The Rescue. She wrote this before Christmas, and I just now got over there to read it. Sorry, Stacie, but I’m sure you understand how crazy things were just before the holidays.
Anyway, the post is “To The Grumpy Lady At Burger King.” You can click over to read the whole post. I wanted to give my opinion to what happened. What in the world was that lady doing in the Playland area if she didn’t want to be around kids. Kids are curious. They know no strangers when they are toddler age. If you don’t want them coming over and staring, don’t eat in their area.
I hate it when strangers take it upon themselves to admonish our kids. I had that happen to me in a parking lot, and the lady made my daughter cry. I was pissed! And yes, I told her off. Why do some people think that they have the right to do this?
We work on teaching our kids not to speak to strangers, and here are these strangers talking to our kids. Don’t Do It! If the child’s parent is no where to be seen, then call over an employee or security person. Do Not interact with our child unless he/she is hurt. NEVER try to discipline a child. If you have a problem, talk to the parent. IF you are eating your food in the children’s area, you DON’T have a right to get upset or speak to our child.
That’s just my take on it. Oh, and check out the adorable picture Stacie posted of her daughter in the post she wrote up. What kind of person has a problem with that cutie?
