I’d have asked the child to stop tugging at my ring and divert her attention away from the engagement ring. I would not have “popped” her hand (I don’t hit other people’s children even if their parents have given me permission to commit appalling acts of physical violence against said children) but then I wouldn’t have been interested in telling anyone how much the ring cost either on the basis of a silly comment about Walmart.
Quite frankly, a mountain appears to have been made out of a molehill.

I think people need to parent their damn kids. There is no free pass to rude behavior, Adult or child. If people would just give a shit and take the time to love, teach and discipline their offspring these situations would be non existent. Bad kids = bad parents. TRUTH

I would’ve just said “no” and ended the conversation. I don’t really give a shit where people think my ring is from and wouldn’t have revealed the price. The price is nobody’s business except my insurance agent’s.

alpinebride: You’re worried about abuse to children but apparently think its okay to tell a total stranger that if she ever gets pregnant, to have an abortion. Completly logical right? But not gonna touch that can of worms.

Telling a 5 year old that she’s too little and your ring is too expensive to try on? I’m sorry, but you were asking for a remark with that statement. I would have either let her try it on (she’s 5, not an infant who might swallow it), or left out the part about the ring being too expensive…and I wouldn’t have laid a hand on her if she’s not your child. jmho.
When I got my ring, soon as my 9 year old saw it, she slipped it off my finger to try it on. I thought it was cute that she wanted to put it on.

I am surprised this post isn’t closed yet.. People have posted less about a ring and it gets shut down immediately. This post there is clearly backlash for smacking a kid, and some cursing and all, and yet it is still open.. WOW! It is like watching a soap opera! LOL

Okay you guys, I have no idea what’s going on, but it looks like this thread is not going in a good direction. I’m going to go ahead and close this now for review. Thanks everyone!
