I hate it when that happens. I'll be standing in an aisle, looking at a product, when from a distance I can hear it coming. They swoop down on you yelling like a pack of screaming banshees, running up and down the aisles. I'm not talking one hungry kid or something, I'm talking an ill mannered herd. I love kids, but totally understand where the clerk is coming from.

Cut off the welfare checks for having all those kids, and those 2 moms won't be shopping there, or anywhere else. Problem solved.

Then give that clerk a raise.

The kids should be locked in the car while an adult does the shopping.

In the winter, give them a blanket.

In the summer, roll down the windows a half inch.

Everything in moderation.

You can smother them, or not give them too much supervision. I'm sure we've seen both extremes with other peoples kids.

I will say that you can raise them to behave correctly even when you are not around.

When somebody calls the parent if the kid did something bad the moms in the video would be "not my kid, you're a liar"....me on the other hand would go "Hmmm, well thankyou for letting me know, I will definitely deal with it and I' sorry they did that."

Is this sarcasm ? Hard to tell. I was a single mom with 3 children and my kids DID NOT act up in public. They knew better.

I hope I am not the only one who finds these posts offensive. Blatantly racist and actually endorsing child abuse! C'mon people, report this.

I own a small shop and the children that come in here go one of 2 ways.....REALLY well behaved or the spawn of Satan.

I've literally asked people to leave because they're special snowflakes are destroying the place and disturbing others. One special snowflake climbed into our store window display - we're in a historic building - and dumped out beach pails of sand over the summer. Little special snowflake had 2 parents in here at the time and not one was watching him. When I found the mother, all she kept saying was he's 3. He likes dirt. He's a boy.

In my head, I'm asking if she wants to see him reach 4? There's a beach 3 blocks away where he can play in the sand until the ships come rolling in. I don't care if he's a boy or girl or doesn't know what sex he is or goat or a giraffe. You're in public! Not at home! If you want him to destroy your house, good for you, but your special snowflake is not welcome to destroying my business. I finally kicked them out and not once did she apologize or clean up special snowflake's mess. I got to do that!

Today we had another special snowflake. He was a turd as soon as his mom walked in. They were here for less than 1 minute before he started asking every 30 seconds if they were leaving yet. He was about 6-7 years old....definitely old enough to not act like this. Well she wasn't ready to leave after 2 minutes so he knocked over a display. She did apologize like crazy and tried to put it back. She felt awful. She left and was totally embarrassed.I heard her outside giving him a piece of her mind. She was NOT happy with his behavior.

Huge difference in the way the parents handled these situations. I actually felt bad for the second mom. The first one I just wanted to throw into the lake and punch her in the head with the dock. Her kid is going to be a great adult....if he makes it that far!

Based on my experiences with being out in stores, I am willing to bet all of Warren Buffet and Bill Gates' bank accounts that these 8 small children were acting like yard apes as my grand father would call them. Ever been to a WalMart? Yeah....the cream of the crop hangs out there. Dollar stores are far worse. Sadly, it's become ok to act like an idiot and no one is supposed to say anything because they're all special snowflakes......little turds is more like it!

Come on, now. I have been in some Dollar stores when the children in there caused no problems at all.
