Fandango has given us Tantrum as our word prompt today.
One thing I cannot stand is spoilt brats, shortly followed by spoilt brats throwing a tantrum (or paddy as we used to call it).
I have known parents leave their offspring screaming and writhing on the floor in supermarkets only to rush and dry their tears when they realise they are alone.
I have seen a father pick his child up and carry it over his shoulder like a sack of coal out to the car, abandoning his trolley of shopping, including kid’s treats, in the aisle.
I read where a woman put her two daughters on the ‘naughty step’ in the freezer aisle in a supermarket because they played her up. Bravo young Mum!
