Well, here's the story. I was in a bowling alley with my family the other day, which is connected to a bar. There was another family bowling, 2 adults, and a kid. The 2 adults were drinking and fighting. The little girl, who was no more then 5 or 6, got a strike. She came up and said "Mommy, daddy, look! I got a strike!" The both yelled at her saying "Shut up, get away!" because the parents were arguing. I almost went straight up to the father, and was going to tell him off. I think that it's wrong to do that to a kid. It's parents like those, that warp kids minds, and which makes the world what it is today. (Bad) What do you all think?

I agree it's sad, and I too want to do something when I that kind of stuff happen. But you know they'll just take it out on the kids when they get home if you do. All I can tell you is that I came from a family that fought like that. And sometimes adversity does make you stronger and I'm committed to never doing anything negative like that to my son. Even when my wife and I got a divorce we never fought in front of my son and are always civil to each other and cooperate for his sake whether he's around of not.
