It amazes me how the west thinks of kids and how you think it is okay to divide generations apart from each other. Kids on their own, teens on their own, adults on their own, elderly on their own.
In June, Malaysia Airlines banned babies from many of their first class cabins, prompting other major airlines to consider similar policies.

I can't remember a time when my kids were acting up in public, and didn't listen when I told them to get it together, otherwise I'd grab a good hunk of skin on the inside of the arm, and do what we call the 'pinch and twist'. They're 9 and 10 now so it wasn't super long ago. There are ways to bring the pain, without making a big scene. On the flip side, I can't really remember a time when I remember being in a restaurant or wherever, and having my time ruined by somebody else's screaming kid. Maybe having kids, and animals (2 australian shepherds, they're just like kids), etc. you learn to tune it out....edit on 28-7-2011 by 27jd because: (no reason given)

There is a restaurent in the Pitts., Pa area that just banned children. They interview adults and the noise was the factor.I do not agree with this raising three children myself.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the no kids allowed movement.
Why should I be subjected to your kids whining, screaming and moaning when I"m trying to enjoy the world. Heres a clue for all you parents out there: Your kid is not special. There I said it.
Now smack him upside the head when he messes up, praise him when do actually does something worth praising and quit trying to be friends with your kids...that happens when your kids are adults. Your kids are kids, deal with it.
What cracks me up is all these parents (my friends included) who try to rationalize with kids, they try to explain to them why they can't eat rat poison or drive the car. They're kids! They're stupid! Their brains aren't even ready for rationality until middle school. Punish your damn children, dont treat them like they're the judge at your parenting trail.
The no spanking movement has created a generation of American kids who are obnoxious and lack self discipline.
Heres a secret: its ok to hit your kids. Theyre kids. Not pricelss ming vases. I'm talking punishment here, not abuse and yes theyre different things.
(disclaimer: not all parents and kids are like this but, it seems, terrible parents and children are EVERYWHERE!!)
The generation I am in does not like being hit. I want to kill my mom anytime she threatens me or tries to hit me. Sorry, But if you can hit me, B*** i can hit you back.
