Just watched a kid spill a big drink all over himself at a cafe, and his dad is super mad at him. Won't stop blaming him, telling his wife "the kid won't learn a thing". This is not a parenting style I approve of.

@twylo Yeahhhh. Any time I spilled something as a kid, my parents acted like I did it on purpose and told me I should respect people's possessions more. All it did was make me afraid to drink anything :Z

@trysdyn Yeah. His MOM actually has the right idea. She insists it was just an accident, nothing to get upset over. That's the right attitude.

@twylo @trysdyn I gotta say, though, now that I've got a couple of kids, I'm way, way less judgemental about other people's parenting, particularly in public.
