Something I've learned about myself today: I do not have the ability to not snatch a kid by the collar and tell them how to behave in public.
That is yet another reason I might not want to be a teacher when I finish my collage degree.
More parents now a day seem to frown on strangers disciplining their children. Me? I was wishing today that one of the parents closer then I would have swatted Kyra's bottom and told her she is not to climb up a slide, especially when children are waiting to use it properly.
Sadly, most people can control themselves better then I can because I, at the beach today, gave the older boy wanting to jump off the top of the ladder (in front of the toddlers patiently waiting to climb up) a stern warning that he needed to get down so the other children can climb up and he had better not jump off. After sizing me up for a second, I think he decided I was serious and wisely walked down.
