Bad Kid and Parenting Sighting

On Saturday as I was walking through town, I came across a cute little boy with his mom.  I guess he wanted a chocolate milk and they were outside an establishment on Washington Street that had one.  So, what happens next?  The little boy is supposed to say "thank you so much, Mom.  You're the best!"  Right?  Nope.  This little blonde kid brat throws a huge fit and screams "This isn't what I wanted! Not this chocolate milk!  I don't want that chocolate milk!!!"

The mother proceeded to ask what the little brat wanted and she took him inside to get a different milk. 

Um, excuse me?  

As a Nanny, one of my favorite things to do is watch how Parents interact with their kids.  So, I watched this interaction until they left the scene.

  Ok, so let's talk about what should have REALLY happened here.  

If you're standing on the middle of Washington Street and you let your son talk to you like that, there's a huge red flag that you are a sucky parent.  No kid should talk to an adult like that.

Then, if your kid asks for a chocolate milk and you buy him one(don't even get me started on the purchase of the second one), the kid better have said please and thank you.  If he doesn't, he's a huge rich boy brat and deserves to spend 2 weeks with me and he'll know please and thank you.  Let alone that he should never speak to an adult in that tone.

Lastly, if your kid throws a tantrum over a chocolate milk, there are deeper issues.  Really.  A chocolate milk doesn't vary.  I mean even YooHoo tastes just as good as the Horizon Organic chocolate milk.
