First off I have not read all the replies. As far as the first
persons questions I believe you did the correct thing. I would have
gotten the manager involved but would have left. At least let the
manager know why we felt we had to leave.
with the Child with the gun. I know people feel differently about if
boys should have guns- I have news for you if you give them one or not
they will make believe one with other items or their hand. It is a
boy thing, and yes a parent has a responsibility to talk to their
children about not pointing it at someone. I also feel that you
should have said something at least to the child. Parents do not come
with handbooks and know what to do and what not to do. Maybe it has
never crossed that parents mind that thier child should not be doing
Someone said something about “bad parents” I think it is more along
the lines of being uneducated about parenting and the fact that we
have a generation that was raised to think mainly about themselves and
only themselves and how dare someone put them down. Who do they think
they are saying that to me? This has got to change. We have to start
caring about each other again or this great country we have the
privilege of living in is not going to be a great country. We can not
be so self-consumed! Maybe that parent needs a gentle reminder of
what their child should or should not do.
And remember chances of ever seeing that person again are probably
small anyhow. Be nice but let someone know because maybe no one else
will let them know. On the other hand it is also nice to let the
parent who’s child is behaving know also.
Good luck and hope some of the ideas you got give you the courage to
do what you should even if you might be a little uncomfortable about
it at first.
When you reach the end of your rope you will find the hem of His garment.
