“no parent should take young children in any restaurant”
Maybe the stupidest comment i’ve ever read here on the blaze. You sir/madam definitely do not have children. And as Cav says above, I will determine when its time to make an early exit, as we have done on many occasions for this same reason. Sometimes my children will/would stop after 5 minutes, and sometimes they won’t. They don’t always know how to express themselves when they are not feeling well. I will say if it was 40 minutes non-stop the parents should of left earlier. However, come up to my child and yell at one of them aggressively like this, me and this person will be finishing up outside, and if its a women then I’ll let mommy give the invite….
Nothing "stupid" about it.
My parents DID NOT eat out for several years because my sister and I were not mature enough to be out in public and not make a fuss. Once we were mature enough, acting out in a restaurant resulted is a quick trip outside and a good swatting on the backside.
Parents who see nothing wrong with bringing an undisciplined CHILD to a restaurant that caters primarily to adults (not McDonald's) are the ones with the sense of entitlement.
If you want to "dine" out, leave the kids with a sitter or go someplace geared for small kids. DO NOT take them to a place where ordinary people want to enjoy a nice meal among others who know how to behave in public.
I have found that most parents like this take their littles out when it’s not prime time for the littles. I have 5 kids (12, 8, 7, 4 1/2–twins). I can take all 5 kids out without a problem for lunch. But if I wait too long for dinner, or get the kids up too early for breakfast, it’s to-go or stay home (mainly for the twins). The other day, my husband and I went to a restaurant to enjoy each other’s company and were treated to a family with 2 young children–2 and 8 months–who were tired and whiney and crying. My husband and I got up and left.
Do I agree with what this restaurant owner did? Yes, maybe could have been more polite about it, but these parents were allowing their child to scream and cry for 40 minutes, regardless of the reason. I’ve given my kids minutes before I remove them to calm down and return…or we wait in the car for everyone else to finish and my tantruming child can eat take-out. I’ve also ignored my kids’ tantrums for 30 minutes at a time…but we’re at home…where the only other people it bothers are the siblings (who will lock themselves into their rooms and play games). Subjecting people outside the home to these tantrums is just as disrespectful as yelling at a child…of course, if more parents would act like parents, this wouldn’t be an issue.

Can someone explain how this shooting happened even after we banned the confederate flag?
The shooter had to drive down Lee Highway to get to one of the shooting sites. I'm assuming the highway is named for Robert E Lee. So obviously it's a racist highway, and now they'll have to ban highways, or rename it after Michael Brown or Trayvon.
LessIsMore, I thought your comment very clever, then along comes ErinL and out does you! Love it.
LessisMore; "Can someone explain... "
I don't think so because you see...
The Confederate flag has not been banned.
You might want to work on your cause-and-effect premises some. Otherwise you start to look a bit...
Out of touch with reality.

She barely changed it in my opinion. Scales were still the same

if I did this to one of my children……and she found out…….this story would also involve a homicide

Thanks for clearing that up Marnin, I totally missed his point and had no idea on what he was trying to convey……sarc off
And when did I say it was illegal….hmm, I don’t think I ever said that. Geez you people on here tonight.
I think if you guys can’t joke around a little bit and take offense to every little thing, YOU should go join the liberal dems, as thats their boat and you should fit right in…
And actually, to get technical, some people to take it very serious as it is meant for IMMINENT danger to persons or property and requires immediate action. as the flag not being just a symbol to manipulate to make a political point. Even though i happen to agree with the message…

And your sense of humor sucks. And your avatar is in poor taste as it violates §176 of U.S. Flag Code.
