Sometimes I see some thoughtlessness on behalf parents, it seems that sometimes the parents have just given up on parenting. I often see kids running up and down and into people at department stores. But the worst parenting behavior is that one when the parent does not realize the potential hazard of the situation. Here is my number one common sense parenting advice. Never play football with your kid in the street near a blind turn, especially in what is considered a quite street. If you think the street is quite, so will some crazy teenager driving taking that turn at 45 mph while sexting on his phone.
