|But I guess "fuck up" parents don't deserve to be treated gently? You should just let them, and their children "have it". And I don't mean by screaming at them. Sometimes tone can be just as damaging.
But perhaps you don't care about how other people feel? If that's the case, what makes you any better than the person who you preceive as not caring about how YOU and YOUR child feel?
I think you were directing this at everyone who didnt agree with you....myself included.
I can only say for myself.......I NEVER said and never would YELL or SCREAM at another parent or their dc....or think of them as a FUCK UP and not treat them or their dc with respect. I dont believe anyone else did here either...please post a quote if Im missing someones post.
By saying something like "that toy belongs to my dd, please let go of it" or saying to the parent "maybe you didnt notice, but your dc has hit my dc again........" or a simple "no hitting" to their dc if the parent isnt around.....these are the examples of comments I was referring to.
I would never BROW BEAT, SCREAM, OR YELL at someone..(esp a dc!) .....unless they blatenly sent their dc over to hit my dc or something equally outrageous.
Just bc we disagree with your view on how to handle this......and sound like we are fed up with these kinds of situations......doesnt mean we are all out to viciously attack another parent or treat them or their dc with anything other than how we would want to be treated.
Its a frustrating situation that alot of us face daily......... We all have to find what works for us and our dc's.
