  You and your family are enjoying a nice meal at a restaurant. You’re all having a blast when you hear a little kid start to nag. At first, you don’t realize it, because it’s not such a big deal. A minute or two passes by and then the kid just starts full out crying. The room quiets down as everyone awkwardly tries to deal with this situation in their own ways.

  Some will get angry at the parents for not disciplining the kid correctly, some will get annoyed at the child for causing a scene at all, and some will just gawk as the entire situation plays out.               

  When asked about this subject, sophomore Katrina Cordova said, “I think that kids who cry in public might be a little out of control. That’s not always the case though, there could be various reasons for them to cry. . .”

  As the second oldest of six children, I deal with little kids everyday.. So it’s no wonder that I usually don’t get flustered when I hear another person’s child throwing a fit.

  When a situation as described above occurs, other people shouldn’t judge or make a big deal out of it. As stated by sophomore Rafael Espinoza, “. . . we all have bad days and we should respect each other because we don’t know what’s happening in other’s lives.”

  Most parents work very hard for their children and do their best to raise them right. No one can choose how to deal with a misbehaving child except for their parent. When other people try to put their two cents in, t just makes it even harder on the parent.

  The best way to work through these situations is to just act normally, and let the parent handle their child.
