I remember seeing on the news a while back , I think it was a couple or just one parent not positive took their child to a restaurant and for some reason the child was crying and screaming loudly and the store owner stepped up yelling "this has to stop" the child stopped crying but the store owner actually proudly put this on the news, I think strangers have no right to yell at your children, and I certainly would not eat there again.

I think that in the old days we all handled social situations better. Much better than before social media where everyone is outrageous and outraged. Everyone wants to go viral. So they post everything they do, every imagined social situation that they think they got the better or the worse of something. In the old days, everyone just had better manners, and didn't expect accolades for their everyday interactions.

I remember reading about this. All the adults were big jerks who could have handled it better but that is besides the point. I think you can talk to a parent about their child without being mean. If a child is being naughty when a parent isn't around I will correct them... even more so it they are at my home. But I would never yell or act out like that, I try not to do that with my own children. And you are right... I would never at a place where they allowed such a situation go so far out of control.
