The War on Children

I have to admit though that I wsh some restaurants have a no-children section.

I love children, but sometimes you just want to dine in peace, you know?

Speaking of which I just got back. I was living with my prego sis for a week since her hubby was out of town. Yep Uncle Aaron to the rescue. I got to chase children around for a week. I would make an awsome dad I think. But man am I glad to be in my own bed.

yeah, I don't like bad, undisciplined kids. If they can be cool, it's fine, but if they gotta scream and throw toys, they belong in "family" restaurants.
But really, kids make noise, and they are people too. They shouldn't be treated like monsters that are locked in cages in order not to bug the big people.
That was nice of you to stay with your sister.

i wasnt going there at all! my little brother sent me the article and it got me thinkin', and its relevant to many discussions I have had lately.
There is a popular idea that children should not be brought out in public lest the adults be made aware of their existance. The movies, restaurants, airplanes, etc.
It's coincidence. We activated the synchronicity accelorator - dont be alarmed.

I love kids, but I think it's cool if some restaurants become adult restaurants. I was hoping some airline would have no children flights, especially for LONG flights.

I think adult restaurants are a fine idea.

The adult only flight, however, would probably be expensive because they would have to give incentive for folks to ride on the kid friendly one.

While I think society has gotten rather kid-unfriendly, I also think a lot of parents could do more to make sure that their kids aren't completely out of control. The uber-polite/no confrontation method of parenting is, in my observation, as complete a failure as last century's "spare the rod, spoil the child" methodology. Of course, kid's behavior and their parents' attention (or lack thereof) to it is largely a result of the socio-economic system we have in this country. We've got a country full of people who live to work and nothing else: no wonder they don't have enough time to spend with their kids.
