    Bham Gal, NOTHING gives a person the right to be rude for no reason. No matter what their issues are, how bad their day is, they do not have the right to ruin someone else's day with their rudeness. I've worked retail and NOTHING is worse than adults who do this. And they do it because they got away with it as a child. And as an adult they get away with it because "the customer is always right". Rude children are likely rude because their parents are rude adults. "Maturely an compassionately process perceived rudeness" basically means "be a doormat".

    I have chastised children for bullying my son (yes, in front of me) but on the other hand my child is autistic and does not return greetings, not b/c he has not been taught, but b/c he is autistic. I will let him know to return the greeting (politely b/c sometimes he is annoyed when people intrude on his thoughts and tends to act accordingly) but I would not appreciate other people doing so because they have no idea what our deal is or how to handle it.

    I think most of us can understand the difference between kids not responding because they are snubbing, and when its because they are shy, or inwardly focused. In this case, it was pure snubbing.
    If they were pre-school age, I wouldnt have thought anything of it.
    This was just a social hello. No reason those boys couldnt have responded in kind.

    The OP, I am sure can. Based on my experience I would not assume that most people can or that they care to.
