What annoys you most Lock Rss

I have a few friends who i sometimes see (try not to when i have my kids with me) and they yell and swear at their kids all the time!!

As a small example, I was over at one of their houses the other week and a few friends were there & one of them yelled to their 3 year old "PUT THAT DOWN OR IM GONNA SHOVE IT DOWN YOUR *** THROAT!!" blink To a 3 year old?!?!

I was so disgusted. I hate having my kids around those sort of people.

I also see some parents do the same thing out in public with no shame! One man & his son (8-10) were in the supermarket & his son was being abit annoying, and his dad turned to him & yelled "Piss off! Im so *** sick of you!" blink
My DD drives me crazy when we're out but not to the extent of yelling and abusing her. What child needs to hear that? Some people shouldn't breed.

What annoys me is the little playgrounds in some shopping centres. They have age limits, I think the one near us is 5 and under, yet there are kids up to 10 playing in there (it's really small and only has three things to play on and about 4 to play with on the walls). The older kids are too rough! My DD's been pushed down the slide, pushed over, kicked in the face when the older kids decide to do tricks down the tiny slide. And the parents don't care! They are too busy on their phones or looking in the shops to notice what their kids are doing.
I only let her play in there if there are kids her age now. I don't want her to get hurt by a careless school age child.

I hate parents that constantly say there child is a burden on them and try and palm them off all the time. I understand we all have enough of our children and need a break but I'm referring to the ones that always winge. Like my stepmum.. Were going to Fiji and I can't wait to spend time with my kids while were there but she has made it very clear she isn't going on a holiday to have to 'put up with her kids' and she has said she wants to pay a babysitter to watch her kids the whole trip?! ( there 7 and 12) she always says stuff like this poor kiddies =(

So true! When my DD1 was 2, she was on a playground at the park & a few older kids started running all over the playground carelessly. The parents were nowhere in sight & the boys ended up knocking DD1 over & she almost fell off the equipment. I was so angry i ended up giving them a talking to (i seriously dont usually ever tell other peoples kids off) mind u they still didnt listen <img src='https://www.huggies.com.au/forum/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dry.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='<_<' />
There will always be things about everyone that aggravate others, whether they are parents or not. It is called life & having differences. I don't feel this thread is going to be helpful to anyone.

OMG your friends sound like my neighbours!! I think they have 2 kids - one is just turning 5 and the other is about 3 I'd say and every weekend you can hear them yelling- they don't even ask nicely first eg please put down the hose. its straight into "Put that bloody hose down now!" then if the kids dont I hear "for f@#$*sake why don't you listen to me" I feel like yelling out its because your not treating them nice, I wouldn't do what you told me either. Its mainly the dad, I have often wondered if he is the father of the kids or not as I can't see how someone could be mean to their own kids.



I hate to see what these kids will grow up to be like mellow how are they meant to learn respect & manners when they're brought up & spoken to like that?

This is probably going to sound really judgemental but it judges me NUTS when I see older kids being pushed around in a stroller I don't mean 2-3 yr olds I'm talking 4, 5, 6 year olds kids that are heaps bigger than my DS (he's a big 3 yr old) And honestly most of the ones I see are over weight, eating fast food with over weight parents..



Ooohhh yes yes yes! And when they still use a bottle or dummy!! Just makes them look dumb. I saw a child approximately 5-6 years old (he was in a school uniform) drinking chocolate milk from a bottle huh

Although i must admit i know of a child who's 3 1/2 with heart problems who still needs to use a pram coz she gets tired & puffed after a few metres of walking. poor thing.

Of course there's other things about everyone that aggrivate others. Thats why i brought it up. To chat about.
Does it really matter whether it's helpful or not? Sometimes its good just to chat about these things.

Makes u wonder why some people have kids sad There are much better ways to handle kids & spending time with them for awhile doesnt hurt! Eventually, they'll be off doing their own thing & she'll be wondering why they're not around.

A couple of months ago at the shops I walked past a woman who was yelled at her 3 year old " You have been nothing but a Fuc!#n little Cu^t today .(sorry I better not spell it out but you get the idea) I was absolutey gobsmacked! What a horrible thing to say to such a young child. I will never forget that


lol i spelt it out properly in the OP and it automatically *** it. I was in awe hahahaha.

it's disgusting what some people call 'parenting'

I have to admit if DS is being particually difficult I will swear but never anything major and I ALWAYS apologise after and say mummy just got "a bit sad" and I never swear AT him just that vent word that pops out sometimes



Bring out the swear jar ! lol. Me & my dp have let a few minor words slip. DD1 hasnt picked up on them. She's brought a few words home from daycare that she doesnt repeat properly but i know what she's trying to say & we just tell her she sounds silly when she says things like that. Works pretty quick.

Letting a few words slip & swearing at your child & calling them names are 2 totally differnt things (IMO)

just to point out you don't know why older kids are in push chairs, I think this is really judgemental, my daughter would never ever go for a walk unless i put her in the double pram,(Medical reasons with her bones, she can't walk far) also my oldest was 4 nearly 5 also in a pram for unvisible medical reasons. don't be so quick to judge why older kids are in a pram. parent dont have to explain to you why their kids are in a pram. How aboutjust saying hello and giving a smile of support
