One thing I cannot stand are children that cry out in public. Not your simple “Hey, I pooped my pants” or “Feed me” cry of an newborn infant. I can understand that. I’m taking about that “YOU WON’T LET ME HAVE ICE CREAM AND I HATE YOU!” cry. The type of crying that, for lack of a better term, shows that your child is a spoiled little brat.
Yes, that perfect little creation of yours IS annoying to the rest of us in the immediate area. I hate to be the one to break the news to you, but that child is the reason no one wants to go near you. How dare I have the balls to say YOUR child is less than perfect? Why, quite easily. Allow me to explain.
If I’m in a store and your baby/child is SCREAMING and you’re just ignoring them while you go about your normal business, then YOU, fellow adult, are the problem. And before you come at me and say there is no “off” button, or I don’t know how hard it is to control a child, let me tell you that my Puerto Rican mama would NEVER allow me to get that far. You know that thing called discipline that white people are afraid to use because some book told them so; Puerto Rican (and most Hispanic) moms know how to use it with a vengeance in the form of a cheap rubber sandal, known as a chancleta (a proud, and long running Puerto Rican tradition). I’ve been on the receiving end of a chancleta a couple of times, and you damn well better be sure I learned my lesson and flew straight.
So yes, white parents of the world, it is possible to have better control over your screaming children. If my hot blooded latina mom was able to control me, then anything is possible.
