This kid is proof some can't parent

Originally aired: Tuesday, February 13, 2018

What would you do if you were stuck on an airplane with an 8-year-old who screams during the entire trip? That's right, 8. Straight. Hours. This occurred on a flight from Germany to Newark, New Jersey, and a passenger recorded the entire thing with their cell phone. When I heard this, I admit there was a snap judgment regarding the child, but then I had to take a step back and consider the circumstances. I have no idea if this child has a disability and I don't know how difficult things have already been for the parents who tried to quiet their kid. We shouldn't be quick to assume this is a disciplinary issue. Are they bad parents? How do we perceive parents who are stuck in this situation? Is this an epic parenting fail? What would you have done in this situation? The JayMac News Show is usually hosted by KSL News Radio's Jay McFarland, who also hosts the fictional podcast, Hosts of Eden.
