The five year old in the seat in front of me (ORF-EWR commute this morning, Embraer RJ-145) is whining, crying, kicking the seat in front of her (where her mother is seated) to get her mother’s attention after her father told her that the airplane doesn’t have WiFi...

I’m just astonished by the whole scene...

Parents who won’t admonish her behaviors.

A five year old who is entitled to WiFi, while flying in a plane!

Beyond even “first world problem”...

My kids had crayons, and coloring books. I wouldn’t have allowed this egregious display of spoiled behavior...

Wow.

Just.

Wow.

I also shake my head at how some of these really young kids can be so bratty and easily throw tantrums in public. It starts with the parenting, or lack of it.

I’ve had a few transpacific flights with these types. Thank God for noise cancelling earbuds.

I once saw this child go bananas when the "fish and chips" they ordered came with fries instead of chips.

And these kids will grow up to be "entitled" adults.

Fun stuff having an 8th grader who has an iPhone 7 (my old one) and her peers get the iPhone X models approaching that cost. Locally our demographics my daughters peers have parents in or near the Top 1% and I am not.

Interestingly enough all the commercial pilots parents I know(5) bought their kids iPhone X somethings.

Parents use cellphones to shut their bratty kids up.

This is like giving a crackhead $50 worth of rock to smoke. 100% of their kid's attention is focused on the pipe (cellphone).

Sad but true. frown

Long car rides and plane ride I let my daughters(3) use their electronics (ancient iPad, $30 kindle etc, iPhone 7). Only one of mine is addicted like crack to some games. The other two (5 and 12) seem to just listen to their downloaded music playlists. My 5 year occasionally watches a downloaded PBS show is about it.

madRiver,

I'm sure your kids are not brats.
So many terrible parents that raise terrible kids.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I was at grocery store and see 2 boys approx 10 years old running around the produce department. I tell both not to run cause they could get hurt.

Nasty terrible mom tells me to...... "mind your own business."

About a minute later I hear a loud crash and see the kid lying on the ground because he ran into another person's shopping cart full speed. smirk

The supermarket immediately calls 9-1-1 because kid was a crumpled ball of [censored] on the ground.

When I was 10 years old my parents would have given me a big wack on my rear for clowning around in public.

I was helping to do an open house once. Parents with kids came in and the kids starting playing with the toys that the seller had as the seller also had a child. Parent did nothing, just left the kids to play unsupervised and when about looking at the whole house. The kids even went and opened up storage bins to get at more toys that were stored away. Parents saw it as they walked by and did nothing. Couldn't really say anything as it wasn't really my place. Most of the time when parents come in with kids, they keep their kids with them and stop them from playing with someone else's toys.

Seems young parents are not parents but just baby sitters. They do what it takes to keep the kids happy and that is about it.

No one raised the parents . Little wonder , the parents are not raising their kids . ( Take a look at the grandparents . )

Raising kids takes work , guts & tough love . So you can kiss that good bye . :-(

Do not bring kids into this world if you do not plan to raise them or support them .

God bless
