    This reminds me why I'm never having kids.

    Is used to think that...until I had a kid. Now, I wouldn't give up being a father for anything.

    Pretty much my view. If the kid is just crying or whining, I think it doesn't warrant getting kicked off the bus, but if the kid is running around terrorizing people or something like that, then by all means they deserve to get the boot.

    That said, if I'm asked to look at this legally, if the bus comany has a policy on ejecting annoying children, they have that right. If the individual driver made a judgment call (which seems to be the case here), then the company can support the driver's call or punish him for it.

    i voted YES kick the bitch to the curb

    i don't see Asian kids throwing fits - they understand discipline

    if you don't know how to raise kids then you better know how to drive a car.

    kids are like dogs. their parents/owners think everybody should love them.

    i am sorry but i don't love your dog and i don't love your kids. if you feel like traveling with your dog - BUY A CAR - and the same for your retarded kids.

    It depends. I'm one of these people who really gets annoyed that parents today just don't seem to be able to or want to control their children. I think children should be seen and rarely heard in grown up situations. But it would depend on the circumstances such as the age of the child and what the parent decided to do to remedy the situation.

    I think the use of a dingo is a fine addition to Australian parenting skills.

    Is there a single problem in the world that hasn't been caused by government in the first place? No environmentalist influence on regulation, no suppression of nuclear and post-nuclear energy technologies, no need for everyone to take the same slow-ass bus. Flying taxis for all! Seriously.

    Seconded.

    I hate going on public transport and having children running up and down the carriage, screaming, hanging off bars and making the journey horrible for the rest of us.

    Control your child or get off the damn bus.
