    There are a few Moms in my playgroup who do this as well.  They come in and turn off and let their kids terrorize all the other kids (and Moms.) I always think if you want to bed down like cattle chewing the grass (and ignoring your children) then go to the country and do just that.  At least there is an electric fence to keep in free roaming children! smile

    My hubby and I often say that “we hate other people’s kids”.  We LIKE kids, for the most part, but we only want to have to parent our own, thank you very much!  Everytime we go to Chuck. E. Cheese, there is at least one or two parent-less kids that try to glob onto our fun.  It’s really annoying as there are no parents in sight and these kids have no manners at all and are practically jumping on us, or the rides/games that our kids are already on… EGADS.  It makes me super mad at the parents, because these kids have no chance, you know.  It’s sickening.

    Oh I saw that kid here recently!  We were dining waterfront and her nine year old self was playing in the MUD.  It was all over her dress, everything.  And her fathre appeared a bit tipsy and not interested.  It was sad, very sad.

    aw, what a sad story. Why do people bother having children if they don’t have any interest in them? I don’t get it. I hope they wind up smoking stanky, be-wormed turds in hell. I really do. What assholes.

    It’s sad. Those kids might actually have a chance to turn out OK, but they are stuck with inconsiderate a**hole parents who are so in love with themselves that they can’t bear to tear themselves away from their precious cell phone.

    On a debate board, recently this discussion came up.  And the mothers who did this justified it by saying they were letting their kids learn to survive without them.  Like they are grown and everything.  Whatever.  I’m a hovering mom.  Your the good mom for watching your child.

    So annoying! And sad. Luckily the mother bear in me has no problem instructing these kids to “not climb up the slide because a little girl (mine!) is trying to come down” and “don’t throw sand at other people.”  I like to think I’m modeling what to do/say for these parents who are too busy yakking away to pick up on it…

    The kid peed on the curb?
    OMG, that’s freakin’ disgusting.  I would have had to smack that parent.

    So sad to hear/see there are parents like that out there!  Those kids will do anything they can to get attentions; eventually they will make it to the news!  Thanks to irresponsible parents.

    OMG, this post is exactly why I love living in a small ‘backwoods’ town.  I totally would have told that poor girls mom that her kid was peeing on the curb and where the bathroom was.  LOL!  That poor kid.

    Some people just have no clue…So sad.

    Oh my. I must blog on this topic. I witnessed an atrocity like this yesterday. Made me see RED!!!! Grrrrr.

    Oh, I hate moms (dads) like that, too…and their self-taught heathen chillins…but I also dispise the nazi mothers who yell at their child for every little stinking thing so that there is no chance of fun for the child.  It’s a good thing that we are all perfect, haha!

    Amen sistah. Ok though, seriously, I’ve caught my boy peeing in the grass at the park. and I think we’ve let him when there’s been no bathroom near by. So I’m guilty on that point, sorry smile

    I blogged about this a while back - man, do I feel your pain. We had neighbor kids inviting themselves over. SO ANNOYING. And they totally did the babyspeak to Jack, and tried to “guide” him around to do what they want - which I quickly put a stop to (he has his own mind, girls - he’s 2, not stupid).

    Like my husband says, there’s nothing worse than someone else’s kids. Not because of the kids, but if the kids are in your face, it means the parents aren’t watching the kids, more than likely.
