Instead of wondering why some grown adults today behave in questionable ways, we should look at the ways that their parents raised. Often, they simply were raised by parents who normalized completely unacceptable behavior. Usually, entitlement, rudeness and impoliteness can be traced back to bad parenting.

If kids don’t grow up being taught right from wrong in a social setting, even if they learn it later on in life, it becomes very difficult to correct their already formed habits and expectations. Instead, people are taking to Reddit to expose parents being terrible models with kids still at a young age, in the hopes that those kids can be saved before it’s too late.

Thrift stores offer discounted prices on donated items, plus they’re a great way to recycle discarded items instead of just throwing them out. The least we can do to keep thrift stores running smoothly and benefiting one family to the next is watch our kids so they don’t destroy the toy section like this.

The worst part is that their parents saw it happen and reportedly did nothing about it.

It’s quite puzzling why a parent would think it is okay to leave your baby in the middle of the entrance of a store and then disappear.

It should not matter how crazy of a sale H&M is having if it means it will come at the cost of possible harm to the baby. Either take the baby in with you or go home.

This woman seems completely distraught that someone dared take a picture of her while she was changing her baby’s diaper. The irony is she probably was more upset that she was being judged for changing her baby’s dirty diaper on top of an Old Navy clothing display.

Not even considering the sanitary complications of doing this directly on u-purchased new clothing, the whole thing is disrespectful to everyone else in the store, including its employees.

This parent practically became part of the show so she can get a close-up of her kid and be able to record. Listen it is understandable to be proud of our kids’ accomplishments and want to capture every moment of it. The thing is, what this parent is doing is selfish.

Can you imagine if every other parent did the same thing? They are just as proud of their kid, but they are also respectful enough of their kid and the other parents, to stay in their assigned seating.
