Today I went to the bank and as I was walking out there was a man yelling at his kid in the backseat. The child was crying and he yelled at him to "shut his mouth and stop his da** crying. I couldn't believe he swore at his child! Seriously...some people should not have children!

Well, we don't know the full story so I don't think we should be too hasty to judge the man. He might have had a really bad day. The kid sitting in his backseat might not even be his child. He might have any. number of reasons/excuses and what we only saw was him yelling at his child

To me, nothing makes it okay for a man to curse a child for crying. I don't care who the child was or whether the man was the father or not. There is just no excuse you can give me that would satisfy me that it was okay.

I understand what your saying and I one hundred percent believe you, but its just part of being a parent. I know how its like to be frustrated at a kid. i wouldnt swear at my child but I would, but I would have to get my point across for him to stop crying, come on yall its a part of life. It happens sometimes.

Well, there are some people who think that they are above all. That they can make a child better by shouting and beating them. But they are so wrong. But I do have to agree that there are some kids who really don't know anything. They are the most dumbest of the world. And maybe his shouting at him was justified enough. bourne

Why would you call a child dumb? It's a given that children may not be as educated as an adult. But I've seen some children that are far smarter than adults in other ways. There is nothing that gives an adult the license to curse a crying child. It just shows how immature the adult is. There are other ways of handling that child without cursing it for crying.

I agree with you about the fact that Adults are more educated than children. But in my experience with children, I have noticed that there are some children who really do not understand anything. As you said it, there are children who are more mature than adults sometimes, but I have seen children in the age group of 3-6 act very weird. They just do not seem to let go of somethings. And crying is one tool that they got to make a point? Maybe that man was shouting and cursing because he didn't have money to buy something for the kid at that moment. I already said that shouting and cursing at a child gives a very bad impressions and leaves a mark on the child. But sometimes, I think that it's necessary. bourne

Children usually cry for a reason.But even if they are crying because they are upset because they aren't getting their way, there is no reason to swear at them to shut up. That is not the parent's way.We all probably have hollered at our kids.And I have gotten upset with my kids constantly crying for nothing. But you don't curse a child. This man, if he was the father, probably was mad because he had to take care of him for the day; who knows.

I was yelled at the same was as a hild and it jut made me a real mean pero to pick on. I don't mean I'd do that to another child, but dangit, if someone gets in my face like that I will defend myself, and if they don't like it, it's their problem. I totally agree with you. Some people really shouldn't have children.
