The ghastly sight was only a few steps from where little Ms Dimples was sitting.The only other patrons in the area were two elderly women.Who might have created this unartistic mess?A reasonable person would know the elderly folks didn’t. A reasonable parent would know, without a doubt, their kid had misbehaved.Unfortunately, there aren’t too many reasonable parents out there these days. Instead we’ve got a bunch of ‘em taking a wild stab at raising kids that the rest of us are having to put up with.Ms Unreasonable Mom asked Dimples IF she had decorated the wall with the condiments.What would any kid answer, when confronted with a choice concerning what even the kid knew to be a punishable deed?Ms Unreasonable Mom seemed to think it was time for discussion. After the kid’s first shaking of her blonde curls, Mom asked the question again. and again.Each time the repeat response was more adamant then the first and delivered with little arms folded across the chest and a “you don’t trust me” scowl on the little girl’s distorted face.Ms Unreasonable – middle name Mom – let the issue rest. Since the condiment containers on their table were empty, she reached onto another table for the ketchup and mustard needed for their hotdogs.Uh, huh!When I was told the story, Ms Unreasonable Mom replied, “She said she didn’t do it!” was her confused response to my alarm at how the situation was handled.Mom knew who put the stuff on the wallMom should not have asked, “Did you do this?”Mom set kid up to tell a lieThe issue should have been confronted – head-onManagement should have been asked for cleanser and ragsUnder Mom’s supervision, kid should have cleaned the mess as best possibleNo condiments from another table – dry hotdogs become one of the consequences of this intolerable behavior.Too many unreasonable parents think this type of behavior is cute. In my reasonable style of parenting – there are no cute kids. center column 5 Shirlee Smith | Parents Create Pinocchios By SHIRLEE SMITH Published on Monday, October 17, 2016 | 5:40 amlast_img read more
