Parenting is not always easy — in fact, it is probably one of the hardest things any of us ever do. One young mother felt embarrassed after she was attacked at the restaurant by a young male. His father intervened and offered some wise words.
How a Man Saved a Young Mother at a Restaurant
While it’s true that babies on airplanes or in restaurants can be loud and a little bit disruptive, the parents of the child are always struggling more than onlookers are.
Lucy Hatami was a young mother who had been struggling with her son for 8 months. After being cooped up with her son for eight months, she was tired of being alone. She decided to take her son out for dinner, but the experience was already difficult.
Lucy was trying to eat with her baby as her struggled to hold her child. His outburst disturbed the other restaurant patrons, but they all stayed quiet — except for one young man.

The man was in his 20s and made it very obvious that he was annoyed by Lucy and her son’s presence. He sighed and said “I wish she’d shut that thing up” within earshot.
The young mom was shocked, but she tried to protect her baby and herself. Luckily, she didn’t have to. An unlikely hero quickly came to her defense — the boy’s own father!
Lucy felt uncomfortable because the young man was rude and rude while he was dining with his father. His father intervened immediately and informed the young man that he was a disruptive baby once. His son was instructed to get straightening.
How a parent of a child proved the importance and value of compassion
“Before I could even respond, his dad comes up behind him, clips him round the ear and says, ‘What and you think you were perfect? You were a little bit of a sod. Stop being a brat and go up to her to apologize and offer to buy her breakfast. She clearly has a lot on her plate.’” Lucy explained.
Lucy was shocked! Lucy was amazed!
