I'm sure people could hear me all the way to the counter, but NOBODY came up to me and said "HEY, what the heck do you think you're doing to these kids?" And I'm especially amazed that neither the father or the grandmother stood up and said "Get your hands off my kid". Yet noone seemed to take ANY notice of my actions.
Perhaps, Cerek, they were thinking "thansk goodness someone is disciplining my child, since I'm too afraid to."

I have seen too many parents who live in fear of their kids and are unable to effectively parent them.
