The kids are in control!!

So yesterday I was on a Southwest flight.  We boarded the plane.  I sat down, and buckled up.  The plane was only about 1/3 full so I didn’t have anyone sitting next to me.  Their was a woman sitting across the aisle with her 2 daughters.  Her husband was sitting in the row across the aisle in front of me.  She says to her daughter “Tell your Daddy he needs a nice big stiff one.”  After the daughter (who was probably about 3 years old) told her Daddy he needed “a nice big stiff one” I sat there in wonderment.  First off, it’s 7AM, nobody NEEDS a drink at 7AM.  2nd off you’re teaching a very young child that drinking at 7AM is okay.  Then you’re teaching them to say a phrase that can be misconstrued and repeated to teacher, babysitter, grandparent….  Not good parenting if you ask me.

The kids were screamers too!  Not my idea of a good well-rounded child.  You’re movie is over.  Don’t scream at the top of your lungs.  Say “Mommy, my movie is over.”  I know people can’t control everything their children do.  But it was obvious these parents just let their kids do whatever they want and they respond to it by giving the kids whatever they want.  I didn’t see any parenting.  I see a kid in control!!

Oh well.  Glad they’re not my kids.  I’ll remember things like this in the future if I have some as a how-not-to situation.

What’s the worst child/parent situation you’ve ever had to deal with on a plane?

(And for those of you that got the Kelly Cornick-Crouth interview list email last night.  Please disregard.  It will get posted, just not today.  Stay tuned!!)
