Friday’s Rants from the Soap Box in My Living Room

Welcome to my Friday’s Rants from the Soap Box in my Living Room. A small space in the week where I can have a chunter about things that have made me twitch with annoyance or made me question if the world has gone mad or not….
I also linked up with MummyBarrow for her Ranty Friday. You can find her blog and link up if you’d like to join in. A good rant can be therapeutic. Click on the link at the end to join in!


My rant this week is short, and simple.

Dear mother of the child, probably aged about 4, waiting outside a dance class this week, while siblings were in the class, who sat there, and did NOTHING while your child physically harassed another younger child, whose mother had to continually heave your child off and ask to stop, then sat and ignored them, when they called another child stupid, and told the other children not to play with them,  because they didn’t speak English, I hope you refused to act, because you were mortified that we all saw, and watched you do nothing, and that on the way home, you gave your child a stern telling off, and will be enforcing better manners and attitudes in your children, in the future…. I despair for our children, as a whole, if this is the behaviour that some parents think is tolerable. (and yes, she spoke English, and yes, spent most of the time, on her phone)

That is all.

    • I know, so rude and just bad parenting, frankly. I would be mortified if my kids came out with that stuff. Wonder what he’s hearing that makes him come out with things like that!

    • Oh yes, my children are far from angelic, and have definitely played up, in public, in fact, we had the screaming cobbly wobblies in the supermarket again yesterday, which was fun, but I hope I would never hear those words from either of their mouths!

  1. Grrrr indeed! If we don’t discipline our children, who is going to? Fortunately our 6 year old has now started saying the things I want to say for me, i.e. “Mummy, why is that boy being so naughty?”.
