Have you ever said anything to a stranger because of interaction you saw between them and their kids? (Your kid is out of control/you're out of control/you're a great parent)
I had a woman approach me to say she thought I was treating my son like a dog because I had a 'leash' on him. I told her I would rather you think I treat him like a dog than someone take him and treat him worse than a dog.
I have told the child that if they were mine I would have already spanked them instead of threatening like their mother.
Haha! Good for you. In Portlandia they don't even threaten. They "reason" with their children. My hand does the reasoning when called for...
I have definitely wanted to, as the kids were completely disturbing other customers too, but I bit my tongue.
In with you!
A gave a multi-racial family some tips on how to take care of their daughter's hair.
That's cool! Did they appreciate it?
They did! They were wondering how to keep her hair moisturized.
I worked at an amusement park during the summer for two years, I've seen all sorts of things, but I've only commented on the positive.
Oh, I can only imagine!
No, I've never been in a situation where a comment like that would be appropriate.
Oh, I didn't ask if it's appropriate, or not. ;)
No, but I've certainly wanted to!
Positive or negative feedback?
Woman in front of us at Smash Burger with a complete brat of a kid made me think of this poll... I didn't say anything. I have told a few strangers that I admire their parenting style though.
