Sketchy-looking dude

Today, I overheard a lady tell her child in a store that, “If you don’t stop crying, I’ll tell that guy over there to take you away.” She was referring to me. FML

Absolutely not. If I am at wits end, I will leave the fucking store with my kids. I'm not going to scare the shit out of them by making them think strangers are all out to take them away. That's absolutely horrible and selfish parenting. At wits end may be me overly yelling at them and getting them in trouble in the heat of the moment, but not threatening of being removed and taken from the family. That's fucking psychotic. This was all a reply to the person above, their sentence makes very little sense at all in the first place and they've OK'd the mom threatening 'removal from the family' because she's had a 'rough day'. That's not what you threaten to a child. Ever.

you people are all terrible parents lol, you can reason with kids some times by "talking things out," add in stress from life, work, family, the pandemic, ect. it can being you to wits end, you have no idea what she went through that day. give her a break

Holy fuck I hope somebody takes the kid away to a better home!

So, you almost had a kid today?😮

I would have taken said child gone to the manager and called 911. Or at least gotten her license number. Somehow my aunts "I'll give you something to cry about seems normal now

Look her dead in the eye and say i don't want him

No, you never give up on your children, or treat them so rudely.

That would’ve been a huge red flag if I heard a parent say something like that

You should have growled, haha
