There is a new cartoonist on staff of our local newspaper that is brave enough to draw what most are afraid to speak. I found one that was non-political.
I wish more did that here. It happens, I get it... but, do something! Unfortunately, they just let them scream and do nothing about it. As if THEY don't hear it. Well, I'm not a rude person and I don't look to offend..... But, I am not a parent by choice, and do not want to here everyone else's bratty kids scream and whine and throw fits. I DO hear it, loud and clear! It's the same thing with dogs..... I wouldn't go out in public with my dogs barking and carrying on and expect everyone to put up with it. IF I thought that was ok... then fine, but in my own home where it's only me hearing it. People these days are just extremely self centered, rude, and completely out of touch with humanity.AND we wouldn't have been so dumb as kids these days to go through the caution tape. If my daughter did that I would be upset that she clearly ignored the tape blocking it off. Tantrums happen, and I'm a pretty gentle parent. But I'm not afraid to remove my child from the store. Even if that means I'm leaving a full grocery cart behind.

Lol! We're lucky... it's all old couples, and young couples here. No children around. We did have a couple that lived next door that had a baby, and he was about 4 when they moved out. But, I tell you... I never heard him. Must of been the most well behaved child. The only time I knew he was there was when he was playing in his little battery powered car outside, or on his swing.Ha! It doesn't stop with babies. A new family moved in 2 houses down and they have 2 little ones. They let them out in the yard and all you hear is them screeming & yelling.
All the kids around here have grown from the screeming little ones to the teens getting rowdy in the woods then driving up and down the block 50 times a day. We finaly had peace.....oh well.
I do agree, but I think we're all mostly referring to just plain bratty children running all over their parentsJust a gentle reminder. There are some children that are mentally handicapped and it doesn't show on the outside. If a parent is TRYING to control their child I will give them a pass.
No one here has said that parents SHOULD do all that though.... just said that's what would of happened when they were younger. Personally, I don't care what a parent does.. but DO SOMETHING! If they show they are actually trying to handle them OR at least SOME acknowledgement to respecting those around them..... then that's fine. Most here around where I live don't do anything. They just ignore it and let everyone else suffer.See there's a fine line here. People who do not have children have no idea what it's like. What's that saying? "I was a great parent, before I had kids!" You think you will handle situations one way, and the kids come and throw you for a loop. I am in no way a big Spanker, take my kid to the bathroom Etc kind of parent. But I'm also not going to just sit there while my kid screams and throws him or herself on the floor. I have had to remove my daughter, who is now 6, a couple times for tantrums. With a time out in the car. But it only took a time or two and never happened again. Also, some kids are harder than others. What works for one child may not work for the next. Being a parent is by far the hardest, and yes most rewarding also, job in the world.
Living next to babies or kids can bring some screams and loudness, sure. But it also brings laughter and joy watching them. I couldn't imagine not wanting to live near children.

No, your right. To each their own. Everyone should be respectful to others. Including kids.No one here has said that parents SHOULD do all that though.... just said that's what would of happened when they were younger. Personally, I don't care what a parent does.. but DO SOMETHING! If they show they are actually trying to handle them OR at least SOME acknowledgement to respecting those around them..... then that's fine. Most here around where I live don't do anything. They just ignore it and let everyone else suffer.
And lets remember as well.... not everyone enjoys kids. That's not a crime. That doesn't make us horrible people. I love my niece and nephews to death, but I'm not about to have my own... or want to deal with others. I have the same respect with my dogs... Not everyone likes dogs. I'm not going to shove them on everyone. I don't have to be a parent to understand how to be respectful and what's right and wrong.
Personally... I do not want to live around a bunch of kids. They bring me no joy, and after all the stress of the day and in my life with my health and the dogs.... The last thing I want to hear is a bunch of kids screaming. We're all different... which is why we must respect those around us... what's awesome for one, is He** for another. Reason #1 why my dogs are not allowed to carry on in public or at home. I want my neighbors to come home and enjoy their home life, not be bothered by my dogs.
In this world there is no safe walk for children, A good time for a walk with parents and dogs too.I don't know if kids are better or worse, I'm guessing the kids themselves are probably the same as always. The parents have changed. I hate it when parents drive their kids to a school that is less than a one-mile safe walk from the house.
