    The no-kids-allowed movement is spreading - Parenting on Shine


    Red highlight=WRONG. Time outs, calmly talking to a screaming brat, ignoring tantrums and in short, subjecting people to your heathen's bad manners and your lack of teaching them proper behavior is what made this happen. (you as in general you).

    Are these the same children that gain their human rights at conception?

    I ain't even going there. This is not about abortion or conception. It's about businesses who are going with the trend of No Kids...which I love the concept of. BTDT. I want to have a meal and not be subjected to screaming kids. Whether it is a restaurant, a grocery store, a movie, a vacation. Too bad it's illegal to not rent to people with kids or even advertise No Kids. Older folks or childless folks (who chose to be childless) don't have the option to NOT be subjected to them or at least know certain hours will be Kid Free.

    I'm definitely in favor of the first class ban by airlines. Sounds bad to some but heck you pay a hell of a premium for first class these days for certain amenities, but loud and/or unruly babies/toddlers/kids instantly negate them.

    Note to parents:

    Nobody thinks your kids are cute except you. Please keep them under control at all times.

    Today it seems that the kids control the parents, not the other way around. Catering to thier every need, and giving in the second junior or princess starts screaming and throwing stuff.

    Kids don't fear any consequences from thier parents anymore, and to them it gives them carte blanche to do whatever they feel like.

    Tell me about it. I teach high school. I can't tell you how many parents call demanding schedule changes because their kid "doesn't like the teacher" or "doesn't get along with the kids in that class". My folks would have told me "tough shit" but of course it never would have occurred to me to complain to them.

    Society in general is just less tolerant of children than they were in the past, alot of adults don't want to have children and don't even want them around, the thing I have noticed is its usually the people with good jobs and careers who don't like or want children,but the idiot who smokes pot all day and works part time at and Pizza Hut will have 3 or 4 kids. We are getting to the point where only idiots are having children and the people with the money and brains are not.

    I've seen this sign in stores. Kinda cute. I don't much mind it when kids scream and holler.
    I miss those days. Now I'm just hoping to be a grandpa.
