One of my students works at a nice restaurant in Hermosa Beach. She says there will be kids, mostly toddlers, running around and ruining the other patrons' meals while their parents ignore them because they're too busy having a good time. At one point, my student told the class, "These parents need to step it up."
I've heard kids in other countries don't act like rude little narcissists. Are American parents uniquely narcissistic and thereby creating the only brats in the world?
And what should restaurants do who want these narcissists' business?
