I made them apologize for those they upset and I apologized for them. I do also say if they behave they can get a treat

Well, I plan to smoke and drink right in front of your kids! Think I'll start swearing in line really loudly as well and telling inappropriate jokes! You won't mind right? You could just ignore my behavior.... Heck, I could keep your older kids entertained while your little one is having a meltdown!....I'm one of the "lucky ones" by the way, so I get to tell you how to parent

um, when did drinking "in front of" your kids become illegal? or in poor taste?
last I checked, prohibition ended.

of course, now that my "kids" are 28 and 31, I drink "with" them!

but we've been known to have cocktails in front of our grandkids.

Lol - Hazel Nut is like that too! She's 80 pounds and I can't swim (I flail about in the pool ) so I don't let her venture in unless my bf is there...

I think age plays a big role too..I'm not going to get all freaked out over a little one throwing a fit(especially those under 3). However......

Last trip, we were at the stunt show in HS, sitting in the bleachers. A girl about 8 or 9 was kicking the back of my bleacher and actually kicked me a couple of times. Now, I said something directly to the child. Didn't raise my voice or anything. Just turned around and calmly said, "I know you didn't mean to, but you kicked me a couple of times." The child said she was sorry, and she didn't do it again. Kind of got a nasty look from the parent though(the mom). In this case, I stand by what I did..the child was old enough to know better and quite frankly, so was the mom. The mom chose to do nothing about the behavior, so I finally said something.

If a child is not suffering from any issues(autism etc) than a child older than 5/6 should be expected to show basic courtesy. I think that's what most people mean..

Sheesh, my dad used to let us have the foam off of the top of the beer. I'm not an alcoholic and neither are my siblings..

well said.
and if a child is younger than that, and in a nice restaurant, the parents should take her out until she calms down.

This would be fine by me... even to my three year old. Again politely asking them not to touch you in any way... be it tongue to the hand of foot to the back is completely different than "nutting up" in a kids face.

And was the look definitely and angry one? If it were me (and it wasn't I don't have any kids that age) I would have been mortified that you had to talk to her. So the look you would get from me would be mortification.

Don't FEED THE TROLL! Especailly the CRASS one. What Puffins said about LuckyPrincess, is ignorant and Crass. It really sounds like she needs better parenting skills if she just let's her kids have a meltdowns, with no discipline what so ever.

see, but you're obviously a parent who disciplines her kids. the example given was a different scenario.

back when I raised my kids (now 28 and 31) all us neighborhood moms discplined each others' kids. that's how it was.

in my house, if a friends' kid was banging on my piano, on she did nothing, I firmly told the child "that's not allowed".

there are some parents who don't like anyone telling their kids what to do. I'm "old school". I will tell a child what is proper behaviour if the parent doesn't.

i once had a friend "argue" with me, in my own house! about what her son was allowed to do. we had a pool table; children not allowed. we ahd a football party (they refused to get a babysitter), and he wanted to play pool. I told him "no, sorry, it's for grown-ups". he cried and whined. instead of backing me up, she asked me "well, can't he just roll the balls around, and not use the sticks?"
(while we are all trying to hear the game).
I stuck to my guns, and the kids screamed louder, and instead of dealing with her child,she was mad at me for not changing my rule!
that's what happens when children are used to doing whatever they want, and their parents back them up. when they get in a situation where they can'tget their way, they explode.
(now, before anyone gets all upset, I don't mean that all meltdowns at WDW are like this. ) I was just giving examples of when you have to tell other peoples kids to behave.
oh yeah. like, when we had a boat. and a couple invited out insisted on bringing their 3 year old. who was down in the cabin, tearing down the wires hubby had for the stereo system on our boat. the dad kept telling the mom to stop her. she said "well, those wires shouldn't BE there!"
hubby turned the boat around, and back to the marina we went! no boat ride for anyone. she was very angry.
