    I'd probably end up killing the child, the parent or myself if I had to go through that.

    Probably why I refuse to go on many planes. If only there was a 'no children allowed airline'. I'd be the first one at their desk booking flights.

    Nothing anti children in expecting parents to control their children.
    If you can't control your kid, perhaps one should never have been a parent at all or at least have the common decency to take their child outside to not ruin the evening for everyone else.

    I can't stand those parents who look the other way and go into denial phase when their brat is kicking up a fuss. Wish all restaurants in London banned screaming children

    Re: Would you go to a restaurant that banned crying and screaming children?

    years ago I spent alot of time at a certain chain restaurant because the girl I was dating worked there. One day two rather large women came in with a 6-7 year old kid during a sunday afternoon. The place was not all that crowded but the bengals were playing and the bar was packed. I was waiting for my girlfriend to get off her shift and it was about 3. SO these two women sit down and start yaking avoiding the kid. The kid constantly tried to get her mother's attention to know avail, these two morons (I had the misfortune of being in the same station as them since that is where my GF was working) were blathering on about some soap opera. So this kid starts running around the entire establishment screaming and yelling. My GF tried to tell the creature that birthed this terror to do something and the mother gave her the "talk to the hand" treatment. The kid almost tripped three servers carrying food in a five minute period. A manager told the fat blob to control the kid as well-no luck. well finally this cretinous offspring tried to do some gymnastics move on a brass railing separating the raised bar from the floor and slipped hitting the floor hard. The patrons and the staff who saw this started APPLAUDING! as this kid -who wasn't hurt-just stunned-started howling like a castrated hyena. the mother finally paid attention and yelled at the kid STFU I'm TRYING TO TALK

    some people really shouldn't breed and If I'd been the manager I'd thrown them out in a New York second

    Re: Would you go to a restaurant that banned crying and screaming children?

    The only times Ive thrown out someone because of their kids is because their kids were wrecking my displays and running around and the parent flatout refused to do anything about it. My and my guys work our asses off to maintain a professional look for the store and I refuse to put up with some spoiled brat with hippie parents wrecking and destroying my hard work. The classic response from douchebag parents is that "Do you have children?" and I respond no but if my father saw me acting that way in public he wouldve beaten the living crap out of me.

    I get that response all the time.
    I don't need to have children to know that a kid is supposed to have their tush on the seats and not screaming and running up and down.

    There was no need for a beating when it came to public and me acting up ... I would be given the look. And I knew what was coming if I continued.

    Expecting kids to behave in public is anti-children? I'm not following. If people can't keep their little crotch critters in check keep them at home!

You can then do whatever you want because I've already made up my mind to kill you.
    I had to do this on an 8 hour flight back from Maui. The Dad was easily twice my size. He could see it in my eyes. He started to say something, then told his son to sit still.
    I would have told my kid (i don't have a son) to sit still, but if you had been rude to my kids in any way, I would have let you have it.

    For the record, I have taken my kids on flights from Asia to the US East Coast with no problems whatsoever...

    I was wondering if I was going to have to bring that issue to the table myself. Yes, autism. I was once a member at a forum who thought that EVERY child who was having issues was autistic or COULD be, and THEREFORE ... well, I'm sorry, but that's bull****. There is no way on God's green that every child who behaves badly at a restaurant or grocery store either might or does have The Diagnosis, and therefore we should just keep our feelings to ourselves and suffer in silence.

    What the women at the forum I just alluded to said was they were trying to .... I know 'acclimate' is not the word, but basically train the child to have to get through it by whatever means necessary (rather like mainstreaming, I think).
