Also, overprotective parents. I once had a lady at my work who was telling me how she couldn't let her child watch Up because it had violence. What?

^ I knew a mom just like that. Her son (only child) went through a brief, but potent, phase of just straight out hating her. And I can't blame him.

Now that he lives on his own they get along like a normal family, though.

I know this shouldn't bother me, but it really does get on my nerves when parents can't pick a regular name for their child. I don't want to hear about a kid named "Ireland". I don't want to hear about 50 kids named Skylar. Seems popular around here, and it really makes me worry for the breeding populace and the future of the planet (again, I know it shouldn't, I can't help it, dammit).

This one time at work there was a young mom and a little girl of perhaps 5 or 6 years. The girl was misbehaving and the mom said "_____, do you want to go in the basement?!!?" The little girl acted terrified and started crying and the mom responded "Ok that's it. Basement when we get home." The little girl about had a seizure she was so upset and terrified by that. I felt really bad for her.

The biggest parenting mistake I see is stupid little 18-year-old cunts that are still living off of their parents believing that they are ready to have a child when they aren't even capable of providing for themselves, much less for a child.

Second biggest issue is people thinking that saying "Bad Johnny!" is a punishment, and will correct the child's ways.

And everyone who's harping on child leashes: The leashes themselves aren't bad, its the parents who use them as an excuse to not watch their kid. Some parents use them because their kids like to disappear in large places. My parents had one for me for when we went to places like the airport or the flea market because I would disappear, find a hiding place, and fall asleep there.

eh, most kids here are just straight up bratty, mouthy and spoiled. I feel like 90% of parents don't even decipline their kids properly/at all anymore. Wtf do I know, right??... I don't know. But when you've been diciplined and brought up exactly not to act like that^^ all of your life, and the majority of the kids you see do act like that.. it's bound to piss you off.

I've only seen this one maybe once or twice in my life, but kids calling their dad "sir" just sounds indicative of a way too strict parenting environment.

one of my friends has like a military dad and always had to call him "sir" and when he lived there, he was fined for leaving lights on or taking showers over ten minutes and shit. funny stuff.

When parents get mad at their kids for playing video games all day or playing violent video games and start complaining to the companies/devs/public about it.

IT'S MATURE RATED WHICH MEANS YOU HAVE TO BE 17 TO BUY IT. YOU BOUGHT IT FOR YOUR DUMBASS KID YOU ****TARD.

God dammit, parents are idiots.

That's annoying, but I wouldn't necessarily consider it bad parenting. Better than sending your kid into a basement as punishment. Unless the basement is where the game room is, but I doubt that, given the circumcisestance. Shit, I can't escape it.

-Might get some shit for this, but parents buying their underage kids (along with their friends) alcohol and drugs is a bad idea.

Maybe it's bad in some countries, but in a place like America with a ridiculous drinking age I find it perfectly acceptable.

Europe needs lower drinking ages so that they have some crutch on which to deal with their otherwise lousy lives.

I saw the opposite of the "sir" problem once. I was in a department store or something and this woman kept calling her three or four year old "Baby." Like "Does baby have to go pee?"

That can't be good.

I frequently see parents that have tons of gang related tattoos and dress like delinquents, with little kids dressed just like them. I understand they are products of their environment, but when you have a kid i believe it's time to grow up. Maybe that only happens where i live? anyone else see this?

It also pisses me off seeing 8 year olds saying tons of bad words, or just blatantly yelling out profanities because they heard their parents say it or in media.

I went to a puppy store with my girlfriend and saw a terrible set of parents. My girlfriend and I went into a puppy pen to play with a puppy we had picked up and in the pen next to us this kid was torturing this poor little puppy (holding it upside down, smacking it, pinching it, throwing it, you name it!!!) and the parents just sat there like idiots ignoring the kid while they were on their iPhones.
And they were seriously right next to the kid and didn't do a single thing to stop him. Then an employee told the little boy to be gentle with the dog and still the parents didn't do shiit. All of a sudden the parent hear the kid squeal after the dog bites him and then they start complaining to the employees that the puppies are misbehaved.... honestly wanted to slap all of them in the face and chuck their iPhones on the ground.

Idiotic parents are everywhere being controlled by their little brats, it's sickening. And then that whole everyone-is-a-winner-so-everyone-gets-a-trophy concept is the dumbest thing ever. Seriously when your kid gets to highschool their pride is gonna get smashed down and they will get a reality check!

Keeping kids out way later than they should be out. Especially at late movies. Late movies that six year olds probably shouldn't be seeing.

My mom's friend does this to her 9-year-old son all the time. they always have guests over and stuff so they go out to dinner and bring him along, and obviously they aren't going to be home before midnight and this kid is out almost every night. It's even more horrible because this kid is really really smart but his teachers don't see his full potential since he can't focus in school. I've started tutoring him because he loves reading and his teacher downgraded him by 3 reading levels or something, so he isn't allowed read more advanced books in class until his grades improve. Which is stupid, he's only 9 years old.

So the sir thing seems to go either way.. don't really find the whole thing with the military dad surprising here. For some reason just using it in general caught on with me when I saw an old bandmate calling other people that years ago, I was like "huh....."
Now I say it to other guys I don't know overly well, mainly co workers and they actually react to it pretty funny. Some of them straight up tell me they hate or don't want to be called that. Others just laugh, kind of like "wtf?".

Agreed.

EDIT: OT: Parents brainwashing their kids. My parents were quite guilty of this, but I saw through the bullshit once I was about 15. I felt sick when I went over to my friend's house. His younger brother is about 15. He's talking to his mom and I overhear him saying, "But why is it that we're against gay people getting married?" And his mom says, "Because God says that what they do is an abomination and we should be trying to help them stop their sin." He says, "But shouldn't they be able to choose what to do with their own lives?" She says, "They can do what they want, but we can't support it."

I was just shocked.

I don't have any children, but I did take care of my 3 year old niece for two weeks once when my Sister had a lot of surgeries. After that I pretty much came to the conclusion that if you're not a parent, you don't have a lot of basis to judge other parents.

Those of you who are complaining about parents and their attention to their child just don't know. I was insane after 2 weeks, imagine a life-time.

PARENTS WHO LET THEIR KIDS TAKE SHITS ALL OVER MY FUCKING POOL!

Seriously, we've had 7 year olds drop their pants and just crap on the deck. WTF?
I see so much bad parenting at the pool its not even funny. Parents drop off a 7 year old and a 3 year old to swim for 3 hours. Parents with 300 lb 11 year olds. Parents who try to force their kids to break the rules. Parents who just pay attention to each other while their 5 year old could be running away to the deep end. Parents who are super harsh on their kids after swimming lessons, even if the kid is the best swimmer in the group.

And I don't like the sir thing. It generally seems to go along with the kids being afraid of their dad, which is wrong.

I hate obnoxious children in public. Or the parents of them, at least. If they're doing what they can to control their child then whatever, but lots are just running all over the place and screaming with no parental intervention. Not cool. I always sit as far away from children as possible in restaurants.
#68
I'm absolutely terrible with children (youngest of 6 kids so I have no experience with younger people) so I don't have any place to judge parents except for how I was raised. The one "problem" with me was that I was never really disciplined that much and wish I was. But now, if you try to discipline me it doesn't even work. So I guess parents need to discipline better.

Oh wait, that's the same thing everyone in this thread has been saying.

The worst, and most common, thing that I see parents doing is outright ignoring their children. I don't mean the "ignore them because they're misbehaving in order to not give satisfy their need for attention", I mean ignoring them when they're just there and being a normal part of the group.

Usually I see this at restaurants. It's a little upsetting to see parents not give any attention at all to their adorable children.

Reminded me of this:

The other day I could hear this kid coming up the street screaming his head off about something. It got louder and louder so I went to see what was going on. He was just walking along screaming at the top of his lungs about what appeared to be nothing. He was flailing about and stopping periodically just screaming. After a couple of minutes what must have been his funny came walking past slowly as he kept walking about 60 metres in front of them, screaming his ****ing head off, I could hear him for about another five minutes, rediculous.

Somehow I get the feeling he will be a prick of a human being when he is older.

Also parents who don't really talk to their kids about stuff even though they know something must be wrong.

One of my best friend's parents do some shit that annoy the hell out of me. Their youngest son is very overweight, yet the dad never takes him out for any physical activity and instead lets him sit on the computer all day long.

They let their 17 year old daughter go out all the time, even though she has crashed the car like 5 times already in the span of a year. She's also been drinking for like 4 years and smoking weed for some time and the parents know all this but don't do anything about it.

The sad thing is that the youngest daughter is seeing all this shit happen with her sister and will probably end up the same way.
