Transcript for Okay to Discipline Other People's Kids?
We are asking the question should you reprimand another person's child if they behave badly. That's the -- I know that's dangerous territory. We're going "toe to toe" on this. Recently on the show "life's a tripp" reality show with bristol palin and his 3-year-old son. He called his mom a word that was bad enough to be bleeped. Many viewers took to twitter and social media saying they wouldn't put up with that for a second. What if it was your friend's child that was behaving badly. Would you speak up? Would you speak to the mother? Would you speak to the child? We have one expert and somebody else who will fancy himself an expert. The first guest is a comedian game show "oh sit" premieres and she's known as "supernanny." Jamie kennedy and jo frost. How are you? All right. I would say we could settle this very quickly and turn to my left, so I'm going to turn to my right. Jamie kennedy. I appreciate you calling me an expert. What do you think? Discipline somebody else ease kid. First of all, people say what she said to me earlier back stage. Jamie, what do you know about kids. You don't have any children. I said I don't have h any kids but I have dated a lot of 21-year-olds. Just saying. Here's the thing -- there are no bad kids. There's bad parents. I agree with that. I agree with that. Just because -- you needed a clap line. You really needed a clap line. Just because you have the ability to have a child doesn't mean you have the ability to become a parent. Just because we all have tushes, doesn't mean you can be a proctologist. That got weird. We call you the "supernanny" for a reason. What do you think, jo? It's important when air telling a child off -- the publish -- there's that saying, it takes a village to raise a child. Why are the village being pressured to keep their mouth closed. If there's a child being bullied. Wouldn't we want an adult to step up? If you saw a community vandalized, would you step up as a parent? If you were in a playground and saw another child dofrng a kid on the head. Won't you want to step up and respond to that behavior? Yes, yes, but what if you're with the child's parent. It's a tricky situation, but not if you're hanging out together. Not if you're friends. It's an unwritten rule you're looking after them with respect and bringing them up with the same morals as well. You should be able to do that. Except for child on child violence, what if they're doing something obnoxious. You're talking about something serious. I like to talk about the airplane issue. I fly a lot. Usually first class, because I can. Now, listen -- you are talking about the screaming kids in the back. Not a kid. First of all a baby, fresh out of the oven, don't bring it on a plane. The baby's going. Ahh, ahh. Waugh. The mother is sitting there, eating cheeto, what can I do, it's a baby, what can I do? And have more cheetos. I took the baby, and I tried to whisper to it. I was on "ghost whisperer." I knew he was going to say I knew he was going to say. Please, god, quit crying. Give us a piece of advice when we're traveling. I have the same thing. I have people come up to me and say please take care of the situation. We have to be tolerant of the fact, kids are kids. They are going to make noise, they're all going be heard. They're all going to scream. If your kids misbehaving, just do your job. Do your job. And be responsible for your kid's behavior. If you talk to me in that accent as a baby, I would stop crying in a second. You can do that right now.
