    Default How would you respond if your child...

    Did the following...

    1- run backwards and forwards yelling at the top of their voice in a crowded restaurant.

    2 - spit in your face and your friends faces.

    3 - hit you hard on the head repeatedly.

    Assuming your child is five

    I cant imagine my children doing that but I suppose I would leave.

    Does the child have special needs?

    Firstly there is NO WAY my child would behave like that, not even at 2/3. And if they did behave like that, I would promptly take them home and tell them that until they learn to behave in public we simply will not be going out and enjoying dinner with friends etc...

    I would be furious if my child acted that way... I would deal with it very quickly and be super embarrassed.

    If not I would pick said child up and have them out of the restuarant so fast their head would spin.

    They would be in a LOT of trouble!!!

    My almost 23 month old DS wouldnt behave like that so i would be mortififed if he did that at 5.
    If it did happen i would be out of there immediately and be so embarassed. He wouldnt be going to a restaurant for a long time either!

    They'd be getting the belt for sure!

    I'd be absolutely humiliated and furious. After making them (or trying to) apologise I'd promptly leave.
    Once home they'd get a good stern talking to and sent to their room, all privileges and favourite things taken off them until they learned some manners.

    The child would be made to apologise immediately to the people it spat at. sorry to me for hitting me and we would leave the restaurant if i had other children they would get a treat on the way home (like maccas icecream) and that child would miss out.

    I only have a 3 and almost 2 year old and they would never behave that way

    I would wonder why my child was having such a tough time.

    My children haven't ever behaved like that, but I do know children that have.

    I honestly would be disgusted in my own child!!
    I would get his father to take him to the car while I profusely apologise to the other patrons.
    Then in the car on the way home I would tell him that because of his behavior we will no longer be leaving the house until he can behave himself.

    I sincerely hope you didn't witness this and the parents did nothing
