Mean Parents Suck,...There, I Said It

Please, stop being mean to your kids in public. I don’t care if you're a redneck in Wal-Mart or picking up an espresso in Starbucks. You look and sound like a witch when you are rude or snarky to your own kids in public.
they are kids, they are supposed to ask a lot of bizarre questions, fidget and touch stuff. (Once Mary's dad said, "stop touching all the buildings", so, who sounded like an ass, Mary or Mary's dad?

Seriously, do you think anyone wants to invite you over for a beer or a spin class when you treat your child with absolute disdain in public? Do you think the cute guy with tight little sideburns wants to spend any time with a woman who is mean to her kids. Here’s what he’s thinking, ‘if she’s mean to her kids she’ll probably be mean to me too”.

And consider this, when you are mean, tense, snarky or short with your child, I’m pretty sure, you look about ten years older than you are. It’s true.

If you have teenagers, don't be the lazy ass parent who never wants to drive the kids anywhere. It's not fair to your teenager and it's not fair to the other parents. Ok, you're gonna miss the rerun of CSI if you take three girls to the bowling ally. So what?  Get off the freaking couch and deal with it so your kids not ashamed by your selfishness.

Don’t yell at them, don’t roll your eyes and hiss at them, don’t swat them on the back of the head or I’m going to become part of the situation.Continued
