Recently, a viral video has been circulating on social media, showing two mothers encouraging their daughters to fight in a McDonald’s restaurant. The video shows two young girls squaring up and pulling each other’s hair while the mothers are coaching them on how to win the fight. The video has caused shock and outrage on social media, as many viewers are appalled that two parents would openly support and encourage their children to fight in a public location.
This incident raises many questions about the role of parenting and acceptable behavior in public places. What kind of example does this set for other children in the restaurant, or for other people who witness such an altercation? How can parents ensure that their children are behaving responsibly in public? How can parents stop their children from engaging in fights in the first place?
In order to understand the role of parenting in this incident, it is important to first understand the reasons why two parents could encourage their daughters to fight in a public place. In some families, parental support can be seen as a way of teaching children how to defend themselves, or as an important part of the parenting process. Encouraging children to fight in public may also be seen as a way to show strength and resilience.
While these reasons may be understandable, it is important to remember that encouraging children to fight in public can have serious consequences. It is also important to understand that parents are responsible for setting an example for their children, and that violence should not be seen as an acceptable way to solve conflicts.
You know we’re living in crazy times when you see a fight between two young women at McDonalds with their parents looking on like a crowd at a UFC match. Will this may make those two women tougher in the future, the important values of teaching your offspring how to express their emotions in a healthy way, how to listen to others, and how to resolve conflicts without resorting to violence were all lost in that moment.
