1) Not everything is known about this incident.
The kid could have been running around knocking stuff off
shelves, stepping on people's feet, etc. I've seen this
too often to discount it when hearing of any similar
incident. My own parents never let us get away with this
misbehavior, therefore taught us comportment in public.
2) This is just an example of "It takes a village"
philosophy. It seems now the Hillaryheads want to forget
3) Having been raised by a single mom, in the '70s,
before the handout programs we have now, I learned very early
what a Big Deal having kids is, therefore made sure not to have
any I didn't want. It would indeed be a better world if
more people had this understanding of what responsibility
is. Which leads to...
4) If you can't feed them, don't breed them. If
you can't raise them into adults instead of old children, don't
breed them. If you won't teach them how to interact with
people in a civilized way, don't breed them. In short, if
you're not ready to be a parent, don't become one!
I'm sick and tired of breeders imposing there mistakes and
costs upon those of us choosing not to. And don't tell me
about "but the kids will pay your social(ist) (in)security when
you're old", because it doesn't look like that's going to

So you think it is funny to slap a 2 year old girl
several times just because she is crying?! I am just guessing
you are not a parent. Otherwise you would know that you can't
just tell, yell, threaten or even bribe a toddler to stop
I have been known to abandon shopping carts full
of groceries because one of my kids had a meltdown. But that
is not an option for some moms, who may not have the option of
returning later after their spouse gets home to be with the
As a mom, I have learned to actually be sympathetic
when other kids cry. They are tired, hungry, and/or bored and
can't do a thing about it when their parents tote them from
errand to errand. If you were forced to sit in a cramped cart
and had limited speech capabilities, you just might cry, too.
I don't believe the child needed to be "disciplined" for
crying. She wasn't damaging property or hurting someone. She
wasn't doing anything immoral or unethical. Her behavior may
have annoyed that man, but it's not like she was personally

ever been in the grocery store and fantasized about "whooping"
somebody else's screaming kids? Don't lie, you know you've
thought about it. Even though living out your fantasy might
have made your day, you probably didn't do it. If you had, you
would be in the same predicament as Roger Stevens, a 61 year
old man in Georgia who decided to take the discipline of a
woman's child into his own
