Standing up for kids
So I've heard a lot of stories lately about companies/people being mean to young kids and their parents. There was that story about the 3 year old and her mom who were almost forcefully removed from a plane because the little girl peed in her seat after the flight attendant wouldn't let her use the bathroom. Then there was that little girl who was kicked out of a KFC because she had scars from being attacked by a dog and "her face scared the other customers".
What is wrong with these people? I mean, seriously, these are CHILDREN. Cut them some slack, put yourself in there shoes, BE AN ADULT. If we treat kids this way we're setting the worst example possible. They'll all grow up and treat each other that way too.
If I'd be in any of these situations, even as a bystander, I would have stood up for these kids. Go ahead and kick me off the plane or out of the restaurant too. At least that little kid and their parents will know they don't have anything to be ashamed of.
Is it just me, or do you think the world has gone nuts lately too?
Regardless of any of that, I agree that some people need to remember to be compassionate towards little ones.
And also keep in mind, happy stories don't make the news, or very rarely do. The news reports the hell out of negative things, unfortunately. Here's an example of a NICE story, but it will never get national attention.
