les enfants terribles

a question occurred to me today whilst sitting and attempting to quietly read outdoors at a public park: what is there to do about other people's children? you know the kids i am talking about; the ones who are running, screaming through the grocery store, knocking into things, breaking them and not caring, while the parent is talking away on the cell phone nearby completely unaware or, even better, nowhere in sight. these are the children who are kicking the back of your seat on the airplane or in the theater, the ones who are screaming and throwing food at the restaurant, the ones who are running around on the bleachers and throwing grass in your general direction when you are trying to read quietly at the park. what to do about it? dirty looks don't usually work, because the parent is not taking care of the child in the first place, so he/she is surely not going to look at you. slapping someone else's kid is apparently against the law, so no help there. telling the kid to leave you alone rarely works, as the child doesn't listen to his/her own parent. it's maddening. the world is overrun with bratty, loud, inconsiderate brats and their lazy, wishy-washy, disinterested parents. what is a person to do?
