I'm also of the opinion that when kids act up in public it's due to bad parenting and also possibly bad parents, not bad kids.

I judge parents of kids who act up as good or bad depending upon how the parent reacts to the child.

Mmmmyes, mmmmyes, I see.

What I see is what I see. You honestly have no idea the how shitty people are around here, especially when it comes to things like "being considerate of others".

Not trying to discount your experience of others and their parenting techniques, Darq--I have to admit I've seen some of the same poor parental control and discipline, myself--but, kids are capable of choosing to behave or misbehave on their own, too. It doesn't all fall squarely on the parents' shoulders, even if the parents are pathetically inadequate in meeting the requirements of parenthood.

Oh, you people all over-react; it's just a laser-removal of the tattoo she got on her butt-cheek with her ex-boyfriend's name on it!

I believe many of the problems that children present in public and private spaces could be solved if we held the parent accountable for the child's behavior in a meaningful way. Such measures could include flogging, tar and feathering, caning or some other historic corrective measure for morons who don't know how to be civil in public.

Why not engineer a social stigma in society against them acting out?

People aren't very good at enforcing most social stigmas. Milgram found that only ten percent of people made the slightest noise when someone said, "I have to get in here," and stepped in front of them in a line (such as at a grocery store or post office). It requires a lot of reinforcement to get people as a whole to respond the same to most any behavior in others (unless the behavior you want is for them to do nothing - that's what most people do already). If the person commiting the stigmatized behavior isn't influenced by the mere presence of the stigma, no one bothers to correct them.

Plus, it's hard to engineer social stigma. Stetson Kennedy tried it in the 40s with "frown power," with little if any success.

How random I've become.

You might say there's a stigma against those who enforce social stigma.

True, that. Why is it considered rude behavior, to call someone behaving rudely on their own rude behavior?

"Excuse me, but there is a line; please wait your turn like the rest of us." Why is this an inappropriate response to someone butting in line?

"Excuse me, but your child's temper tantrum / rambunctious behavior / yelling and screaming / etc., is annoying to the rest of us; please control him or take him somewhere that his undisciplined behavior will not disturb others." Why is this a bad thing to say to parents who are not ensuring that their children behave in public?

Just try telling someone that there is some research that spanking leads to more aggressive behavior then receive a lecture of about an hour and a half about how the black community _has_ to spank their kids or they end up in jail.
