abusing kids doesnt always meen hitting…

I was at our local grocery store this past weekend; almost at the end of my shopping trip. I had heard a young child crying, but that’s not so unusual…kids dont enjoy shopping that much anyway. I continued to hear crying off and on thru the store,and around the corner came 2 moms. One had 2 little boys about 3 or 4y/o in the cart. The other was carrying her child. The woman with the cart was yelling at and berating the 2 little ones: "you’re a couple of idiots", "how many times do I have to tell you!" "If you open that, you’re gonna get it" "your’e too stupid anyways". These insults were answered by the children alternately crying and cowering. My hairy eye and direct stare at this behavior didn’t interrupt her abuse and I quietly said "they’re just children". This did nothing but at least interrupt her barrage at them. Both "mom’s" said "So What!" and then "they’re my kids and I can talk to them however I want. It’s none of your business" Well Ma’m, It is my business!! You brought this bad behavior out in public and made it MY business! If this is how you treat your children in public,I shudder to think how you treat them at home. You will regret your actions and words; YOUR lack of maturity as these children grow to be young men and learn to treat you and everyone else around them with the lack of respect you showed them and other adults. You can pop out kids, but it doesn’t make you a grown up, and certainly NOT a parent.
