How Much Do Parents Get Away With?!?!?!

There was a video brought to my attention that is out there of a mother... how she can call herself that, I'm not sure.... dragging her child through a Verizon store.

Now, at what point, can you step outside your body and see what it is you are doing, and know that its wrong? How much can one person get away with before a stranger intervenes? When a woman is literally dragging a small child on their back with what looks like one of those baby leashes, why do the people working NOT say a damn thing? Even saying something tactfully, like "Ma'am your child is going to have to walk while in the store."

This is not right, its not parenting and you're in a Verizon store surrounded by hundreds of tech savvy people carrying video phones and camera phones. Wise up. And treat your children well. Discipline is not dragging your kid through a store and even if the child is acting up like a freak, wouldn't you be embarrassed to act like this?

WOW! What a shame! it's sad most people won't do a damn thing. Hence the new show, What Would You Do?

Geesh - what is with her??? Pick the child up and leave the store. Period. Don't drag your child. This makes me sick!

OH MY GOD!!! WHAT WAS SHE THINKING! Honestly I would've said something. You can pick the kid up and swat him on his butt and tell him to walk. I hate it when my two do that dead weight thing. That really grates on my nerves!

Jeez Louise, looks like she does it often too. That is nasty, dragging your kid across a dirty disgusting floor like that. I would have picked the kid up and left or threatened to leave him there. My husband definitely would have spanked him.
