wondernut Posted October 22, 2009 Share Posted October 22, 2009 I am sitting her my last few min of work listening to a terrified child scream bloody murder ..what is worse is that the parent is yelling even louder at the child "SHUT UP AND BEHAVE YOURSELF" "BE QUIET" "DO YOU HEAR ME I SAID SHUT UP" OMG this is a little child..and it has gone on and on ..first of all if your child is that loud and vocal they are obviously not that sick ..second how on earth can a parent expect a terrified child to respond to yelling at them to stop being terrfied?????? in about two seconds I am going to go in there and give them the number for parenting classes! the worst thing ever is to threaten a kid with this appauling line "IF YOU DO NOT BEHAVE I WILL HAVE THIS NURSE GIVE YOU A SHOT"!!! I can not tell you in my very long career how many times I have gone off on parents who used this and me to instill fear in a child ..it is constantly used and I hate it! ..and oh no they do not get away with it with me... I stop all triage and make them "take what you just said back and tell this beautiful child I will not give them a shot because they are terrified! and please use YOUR indoor voice when you do" parents screaming at terrified kids absolutely sucks the big one thanks for listening Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
